17179 Codina           Discovered 1999 Oct. 4 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Sayd Jose Codina Landaberry (b. 1926) directed the Observatorio Nacional in Rio de Janeiro from 1991 to 1999. Codina is well known in the field of astrophysical observation and instrumentation. Born in Uruguay, since the 1970s he has helped train generations of new astronomers.
