1986 TJ1. Discovered 1986 Oct. 4 by E. Bowell at Anderson Mesa.

Named in honor of Stuart E. Jones on the occasion of his retirement as Lowell Observatory's photographic specialist. A member of the Lowell staff since 1962, Jones has been responsible for a wide variety of photographic tasks, including, in particular, the processing of high-quality photographic images for the International Planetary Patrol, a decade-long program that led to the production of about 1 million planetary images. He helped develop a method of photographically extracting fine planetary surface features by means of compositing and a method of reproducing images of planets in true color. Jones will be warmly remembered for his multifaceted talents, which range from practical chemistry to the construction of sophisticated electronics, and for his cheerful disposition and dedication.
