7984 Marius           Discovered 1980 Sept. 29 by Z. Vavrova at Klet.
Simon Marius (1573-1625) was court astronomer in Ansbach. He discovered the Jovian satellites, but published his observations after Galileo, who accused him of plagiarism and ruined his reputation. Marius suggested the names for the satellites and also measured the diameter of the Andromeda Galaxy.
