Philibert Jacques Melotte (29 January 1880 – 30 March 1961) was a British astronomer whose parents immigrated from Belgium.
In 1908 he discovered a moon of Jupiter, today known as Pasiphaë. It was simply designated "Jupiter VIII" and was not given its present name until 1975.
The asteroid676 Melitta, the only one he discovered, is named after him, in a way. Its name is in fact the Attic form of the GreekMelissa, the bee, but its resemblance to the discoverer's name is not fortuitous.
