Frank B. Zoltowski is an amateur Australian astronomer who lives in Woomera, South Australia. In 1998, Zoltowski was awarded a Gene Shoemaker NEO Grant[1] for improved Near-Earth Object searches. Zoltowski conducts these searches from his home with a charge-coupled device camera.[1] He is a prolific discoverer of asteroids. He authored CCDTRACK, a computer program that auto-guides electronically controlled telescopes by tracking a user-selected celestial object.

Astronomers at the Minor Planet Center used Zoltowski's work to work out an estimated approach distance for 1999 AN10 of 56,500 kilometers, and a closest approach date of Aug 7, 2027.[2] It was thought to potentially crash into Earth.[3][4][5]

He is mentioned in NASA's asteroid tracking database as an observer for Asteroid 1998 QE2.[6]

Note[edit]

In the table, the mpc links show the International Astronomical Union Minor Planet Center data for this numbered asteroid, including information about the discoverer, orbital elements, observation dates, and sometimes notes on the naming of the body. For instance, for 8430 Florey, the entry on name is as follows:

"Named in memory of Howard Walter Florey (1898-1968), celebrated pathologist, born and educated in South Australia. He and the biochemist Ernst Chain isolated penicillin and formulated procedures for its extraction and production, thereby enabling its large-scale production during the latter part of World War II. For his work, he shared the 1945 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Chain and Fleming. [Ref: Minor Planet Circ. 34627]"
