24105 Broughton (1999 VE10) is a main-belt asteroid discovered on November 9, 1999 by C. W. Juels at Fountain Hills.

Australian amateur astronomer John Broughton (b. 1952) received a Shoemaker NEO grant in 2002 and accidentally discovered the PHA 2004 GA1 using a 0.5-m telescope he had just recently completed. He has also originated techniques for rigorous timing of minor-planet occultations from CCD drift exposures.
