49272 Bryce Canyon           Discovered 1998 Oct. 27 by R. A. Tucker at the Goodricke-Pigott Observatory.
Located in southern Utah and named for early pioneer Ebenezer Bryce, Bryce Canyon became a national park in 1928. Home of some of the darkest night skies in the continental United States, the park has hosted night sky tours since the 1970s.
