16452 Goldfinger           Discovered 1989 Sept. 28 by C. S. Shoemaker and E. M. Shoemaker at Palomar.
Pauline J. "PJ" Goldfinger (b. 1964) helped to organize the Palomar Observatory's 1.2-m Schmidt Oschin Telescope plate archive. In addition to working as an adaptive-optics operator and observer at the Mt. Wilson Observatory, she is active in the Los Angeles Astronomical Society.
