17216 Scottstuart           Discovered 2000 Jan. 7 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Joseph Scott Stuart (b. 1971) derived a bias-corrected diameter distribution of the near-earth-asteroid population through a combination of discovery statistics and spectroscopic and albedo properties. He has also developed moving-object detection software for LINEAR.
