1655 Comas Sola           Discovered 1929 Nov. 28 by J. Comas Sola at Barcelona.
Named by the Fabra Observatory in memory of Josep Comas Sola (1868-1937), first director of the Fabra Observatory, Barcelona, and a well-known observer of minor planets and comets for many years. Among his discoveries were the short-period comet Comas Sola and 11 numbered minor planets.
