Huntsville, AL, United States 34N44, 86W35

Notes: American astronomer and professor of planetary astronomy, who has discovered many trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs), including Eris, Sedna, and Quaoar. His discovery of Eris, which was thought to be bigger than Pluto when it was discovered, triggered the debate on the definition of a planet, which led to Pluto being downgraded.

He wrote a book about this called ‘How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming’, and also published a blog post in 2008 called ‘I Love Astrologers’ discussing the history of astronomy and why astrology played an important role.
