18079 Lion-Stoppato           Discovered 2000 Mar. 27 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Piero Francesco Lion-Stoppato (b. 1969), of the University of Padua, participated in the initial phases of the Cassini/Huygens cruise and managed the spear model for simulating flight commands. He is helping analyze data collected during the Huygens probe entry and descent into the atmosphere of Saturn VI (Titan).
