9497 Dwingeloo           Discovered 1973 Sept. 29 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
The Dwingeloo 25-m radio telescope in The Netherlands supported investigations of the 21-cm emission from hydrogen in our Galaxy. Its principal contributions include the discoveries of the 3-kpc arm and the high-velocity-cloud phenomenon, as well as studies of the galactic center. The name was suggested by W. A. Froger.
