19140 Jansmit           Discovered 1989 Sept. 2 by C. S. Shoemaker and E. M. Shoemaker at Palomar.
Jan Smit (b. 1948) has made important contributions to geology and paleontology by establishing the sequence of impact-generated events that occurred 65 million years ago, including ejecta fallout, tsunami propagation, geochemical disturbances and extinction of foraminifera and dinosaurs.
