29476 Kvíčala           Discovered 1997 Oct. 31 by P. Pravec at Ondřejov.
Jan Kvíčala (1913-1972), Czech jurist and amateur astronomer, was a keen observer of variable stars and meteors, as well as coauthor of a gnomonic atlas for meteor observations. He received the František Nušl Award of the Czech Astronomical Society in 1940.
