Poul Jensen is a Danish astronomer.

While working at Brorfelde Observatory he discovered numerous asteroids. Between 1967–69 he assisted in positional observations with the observatory's 7" transit circle.[1] He is also a co-discoverer (with Carolyn S. Shoemaker) of the Comet Jensen-Shoemaker (1987g1).[2] As of 2004 he is still publishing in the Minor Planet Circulars.[3]
