Poul B. Jensen is a Danish astronomer and a discoverer of 98 minor planets while working at Brorfelde Observatory.[1][2] Between 1967–69 he assisted in positional observations with the observatory's 7" transit circle.[3] He is also a co-discoverer (with Carolyn S. Shoemaker) of the Comet Jensen-Shoemaker (1987g1).[4] As of 2004, he is still publishing in the Minor Planet Circulars.[5]

On 22 July 1994, the main-belt asteroid 5900 Jensen was named by his colleges Karl Augustesen and Hans Jørn Fogh Olsen in his and his wife's honor (M.P.C. 23793).[2][6]
