7320 Potter           Discovered 1978 Oct. 2 by L. V. Zhuravleva at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory.
Pulkovo astronomer Kheino Potter (b. 1929) is known for his work on the determination of astronomical constants and the problems of selenodesy. He was initiator of and an active contributor to FOCAT, the reference catalogue for the southern sky, and he organized the observational station at Ordubad.
