14968 Kubácek           Discovered 1997 Aug. 23 by A. Galád and A. Pravda at the Astronomical and Geophysical Observatory, Modra.
Dalibor Kubácek (b. 1957) worked at the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava, where he studied the structure of cometary comae by means of image processing. He willingly taught students and friends (including the discoverers) and helped to explain to them this relatively unknown procedure.
