46719 Plantade           Discovered 1997 Aug. 1 at Pises.
Founder of the Royal Society of Sciences of Montpellier, François de Plantade (1670-1741) was involved in the use of the city's twelfth-century Babote Tower for astronomical purposes, specifically to observe the total solar eclipse on 1706 May 12. He died on the Pic du Midi while planning to map southern France.
