114156 Eamonlittle           Discovered 2002 Nov. 4 by A. Fitzsimmons and I. P. Williams at La Palma.
An astronomer at Queen's University, Belfast, and a good friend and colleague of the discoverers, Eamon Little (1966-2006) studied the collision of comet D/1993 F2 (Shoemaker-Levy) with Jupiter, before he had to finish his research prematurely owing to illness.
