7158 IRTF           Discovered 1981 Mar. 1 by S. J. Bus at Siding Spring in the course of the U.K. Schmidt-Caltech Asteroid Survey.
The 3-meter NASA Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF) began operation on Mauna Kea in 1979. The IRTF provides valuable ground-based observations that support NASA planetary missions and basic solar system research, including extensive studies of minor planets and comets.
