Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Thomas Kowal (born November 8, 1940) is an American astronomer. He discovered two moons of Jupiter: Leda in 1974 and Themisto in 1975, although the latter was lost and not rediscovered until 2000. He also discovered the unusual asteroid/comet 2060 Chiron in 1977, which became the first object in the Centaur class after a second one was discovered 15 years later. Besides Chiron he discovered or co-discovered a number of other asteroids, including notably the Aten asteroid 2340 Hathor; the Apollo asteroids 1981 Midas, 2063 Bacchus, 2102 Tantalus, and (5660) 1974 MA; the Amor asteroids (4596) 1981 QB and (4688) 1980 WF; and the Trojan asteroids 2241 Alcathous and 2594 Acamas.show more
