"247553 Berndpauli

Discovered 2002 Sept. 8 by R. Matson on NEAT images taken at Haleakala.

Bernd V. Pauli (b. 1945) is a respected meteorite aficionado and
collector with keen interests in astronomy and Egyptology. Co-author
of the Electronic Catalogue of Meteorites and Meteorite Craters, he
has been a long-time member of the Meteoritical Society and a prolific
contributor to the Meteorite Mailing List."

Thanks to Rob Matson for making it so.


"Hilda asteroids are asteroids with a semi-major axis between 3.7 AU
and 4.2 AU, an eccentricity greater than 0.07, and an inclination less
than 20?."

We all know about Bernd's generous 'inclination', but we can only
wonder if this revelation of his additional interest in 'Egyptology'
confirms that he is traveling in a highly 'eccentric' orbit :>)

Gl?ckwunsch an meine stellaren, ich meine 'asteroidal', mein Freund!
