117715 Carlkirby           Discovered 2005 Apr. 2 by R. Hutsebaut at the New Mexico Skies Observatory.
Carl Kirby (b. 1949) is an enthusiastic amateur astronomer who, rather than give up for health reasons his quest for scientific knowledge, passed on the torch to the discoverer, by electing to sponsor his work at the New Mexico Skies Observatory.
