10986 Govert           Discovered 1977 Oct. 16 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld at Leiden on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Govert Schilling (b. 1956) is a Dutch amateur astronomer and science writer. He has been popularizing astronomy since the early 1970s, later as editor of the Dutch astronomical magazine Zenit and as leader of the Amsterdam planetarium. The name was suggested by C. E. Koppeschaar.
