Named in honor of David J. Osip. As an undergraduate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Osip was involved in a number of projects concerning solar system occultation research, including both lunar occultations and the prediction of occultations of stars by Saturn's rings. In his current role as a research assistant at Lowell Observatory, he has taken part in asteroid occultation chases and has participated in an extensive program of cometary research. This research has involved the observation of comets using both photoelectric photometry and CCD imaging. (M 18452)
