Munari

1994 PB. Discovered 1994 Aug. 3 by A. Boattini and M. Tombelli at San Marcello Pistoiese.

Named in honor of Ulisse Munari (1960- ), staff astronomer at the Astronomical Observatories of Padua and Asiago {see planets (363) and (7679), respectively} since 1990. His researches are concerned with symbiotic stars, cataclysmic variables, novae and open clusters as well as minor planets. As a high-school student he founded the Minor Planet Section of the Italian National Amateur Organization, and he still maintains his links with amateurs, allowing them access to some of the Italian professional telescopes. The discoverers found their first asteroid with one of these instruments. (M 30478)
