17278 Viggh           Discovered 2000 June 6 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Herbert E. M. Viggh (b. 1963), of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Lincoln Laboratory, was responsible for software development, computer systems and data analysis of the Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research (LINEAR) program, the world's most prolific discovery program for minor planets to date.
