Named in honor of Akira Kamo (1943– ), who established the Comet Observers Network in Japan, “Hoshi no Hiroba” {see planet  (4971)} in 1968. He played a leading role for many observers and discoverers of comets for more than 20 years when he was the first president of the network. His words ”let’s come together at Hoshi no Hiroba” are well known among amateur and professional astronomers in Japan. (M 22501)
