21774 O'Brien           Discovered 1999 Sept. 3 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
David P. O'Brien (b. 1976) is a planetary scientist at the Planetary Science Institute, Tucson. He studies collisional evolution of main-belt minor planets, cratering on (951) Gaspra and other objects, as well as primordial sculpting of the main belt during the planetary accretion process.
