Viscome

1987 SF7. Discovered 1987 Sept. 26 by C. S. Shoemaker and E. M. Shoemaker at Palomar.

Named in honor of George R. Viscome (1956- ), of Lake Placid, New York. A broadcast technician responsible for master control and videotape operations at a television station in Albany, Viscome is an accomplished astrometrist. His observations of this minor planet at the 1994 opposition were sufficient for numbering it. (M 24766)
