6457 Kremsmünster           Discovered 1992 Sept. 2 by L. D. Schmadel and F. Börngen at Tautenburg.
Named as a celestial tribute to the famous Benedictine monastery, educational center and observatory in Austria. A place of scientific effort in many disciplines, the Kremsmünster Observatory remains one of the most outstanding cultural institutions in Austria---even a quarter of a millennium after its founding. This planet is also named in memory of Abbot Augustin Reslhuber (1808-1875), an ardent observer to whom it was not granted to discover a minor planet himself. Named by the first discoverer and citation prepared with the support of Father Amand Kraml.
