6386 Keithnoll           Discovered 1989 July 10 by H. E. Holt at Palomar.
The discoverer of numerous transneptunian binaries, Keith Noll (b. 1958), of the Space Telescope Science Institute, has also detected and exploited useful molecular tracers (such as carbon monoxide and ozone) in brown dwarfs and the giant planets. He is also the creator of the Hubble Heritage project of HST images.
