11727 Sweet           Discovered 1998 May 1 by the Near-Earth Asteroid Tracking Team (NEAT) at Haleakala.
During the 1.2-m Schmidt conversion Merle Sweet (b. 1942), assistant superintendent at the Palomar Observatory, assisted in overseeing the details in the layout and construction of the slip-ring trolleys. He also worked in the rewiring of the dome. The name was suggested by R. Thicksten.
