20363 Komitov           Discovered 1998 May 18 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Boris Petrov Komitov (b. 1954), of the Institute of Astronomy, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, has studied the physics and chemistry of comets, including 1P/Halley and the collision of D/1993 F2 with Jupiter in 1994. He also works on solar activity cycles and is the leading popularizer of planetary science in Bulgaria.
