24962 Kenjitoba           Discovered 1997 Oct. 27 by A. Nakamura at Kuma Kogen.
Kenji Toba (b. 1950) is a staff member at the Ibaraki Prefectural Office and amateur astronomer in Japan. He started his visual search for comets in 1968, and after sweeping for 123 hours he found C/1971 E1. He has served as the director of the BiStar Observatory since its foundation.
