31450 Stevepreston           Discovered 1999 Feb. 14 by J. Broughton at Reedy Creek.
US occultation observer and skilled mathematician, Steve Preston (b. 1956), introduced asteroidal predictions of unprecedented accuracy in 2001, significantly increasing observation rates worldwide. He was elected president of the International Occultation Timing Association in 2014.
