3337 Milos           Discovered 1971 Oct. 26 by L. Kohoutek at Bergedorf.
Named in honor of Milos Tichý (b. 1966), Czech astronomer at the Klet Observatory. He is known for his work on minor planets and comets, discoveries of minor planets and mainly for confirmations and follow-up of NEOs (near-earth objects). In 1994, his technical expertise allowed the upgrade of Klet observations with CCD cameras. Name proposed following a suggestion by his wife, Jana Ticha, on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of his first student assignment at Klet in 1984.
