9707 Petruskoning           Discovered 1977 Oct. 16 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Petrus A. Koning (b. 1934) has organized youth astronomy camps. Founder of the Bussloo Public Observatory, he was long a member of the observatory board. In 1995 he received the Van der Bilt Prize for his efforts to promote astronomy in the Dutch province of Gelderland. The name was suggested by W. A. Fröger.
