in NEAT archive imagery



Below are the naming citations as published in the IAU Minor Planet Circulars for those asteroids I discovered in NEAT archive imagery (see my separate detailed page on my asteroid discoveries) which have received permanent numbers by the IAU-MPC and have been given an official name by the International Astronomical Union.

Many thanks are due to the people of the NEAT program for approving of these naming suggestions and submitting them to the IAU on my behalf, and to the IAU Committee on Small Body Nomenclature for approving of these naming suggestions and making them official.
