11762 Vogel           Discovered 1960 Sept. 24 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Hermann Carl Vogel (1841-1907) was a German astronomer and spectroscopist. He invented an early scheme to classify stellar spectra and confirmed the sun's rotation. He directed the Potsdam Astrophysical Observatory from 1882 to 1907.
