14623 Kamoun           Discovered 1998 Oct. 17 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Paul G. D. Kamoun (b. 1953) has studied the radar detectability of comets. Using the 12.6-cm wavelength radar at Arecibo, he succeeded in detecting, for the first time, the nuclei of 2P/Encke (in 1980) and 26P/Grigg-Skjellerup (in 1982). The name was suggested by P. Michel.
