Alan Charles Gilmore is a New Zealand astronomer.

He has discovered some forty asteroids, each one in collaboration with Pamela M. Kilmartin; both of them are also active "nova-" and "comet-hunters". He works at Mount John University Observatory and Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. He is also a member of the Organizing Committee of IAU Commission 6, which oversees the dissemination of information and the assignment of credit for astronomical discoveries. The Commission still bears the name "Astronomical Telegrams", even though telegrams are no longer used.

On 2007 August 30, Gilmore discovered his first periodic comet, P/2007 Q2.[1]
