During the course of my research I spend some time scanning skies for new objects in our solar system. Usually, I'm looking for Kuiper Belt objects (things at or beyond Pluto). But, quite often I discover a previously unknown asteroid in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. This area contains information about those asteroids whose orbits are well enough known that I'm allowed to name them. All of these objects are names that I submitted and are approved by the International Astronominal Union. The pages herein contain information about those asteroids and the people for whom I have named the asteroids.
