9259 Janvanparadijs           Discovered 1973 Sept. 29 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Jan van Paradijs (1946-1999), professor at the universities of Amsterdam and Alabama, was a pioneer researcher on issues of high-energy astrophysics. His recognition of the first optical counterpart to a \gamma -ray burst led to improved understanding of the physics of these events, their source environment and typical distances.
