Named in honor of Luboš Kresák {1927–1994}, astronomer at the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava. Well-known for his theoretical work on meteors and the question of their relationship with comets and minor planets, he has also been an observer at the Skalnaté Pleso {see planet  (2619)} Observatory, where in 1951 he rediscovered the short-period comet now known as Tuttle-Giacobini-Kresák {see planets  (5036) and  (1756) for the codiscoverers}. He was president of IAU Commission 20 for the period 1973–1976. (M 3935)
