Tárgy: Újabb magyar elnevezésu kisbolygók
Kedves Barátaim!

Január 24-én a Nemzetközi Csillagászati Unió illetékes bizottsága tucatnyi
magyar vonatkozású kisbolygó elnevezését fogadta el. Az SZTE Asteroid
Program keretében felfedezett kisbolygók közül kilencet az MTA Konkoly
Thege Miklós Csillagászati Kutatóintézetének Piszkés-tetoi állomásán,
kettot a NEAT program archív felvételein, egyet pedig a Siding Spring
Obszervatóriumban fedeztünk fel. Alább közöljük az új elnevezését és azok
eredeti indoklását, amelyek nem feltétlenül egyeznek meg a véglegesen
elfogadottal, mivel az IAU az indoklás átszerkesztésének, rövidítésének
jogát fenntartja.
