Piero Sicoli

Piero Sicoli (born 1954) is an Italian astronomer and discoverer of minor planets, observing at the Italian Sormano Astronomical Observatory.[2] As the observatory's coordinator, he is responsible for close encounters computation of near-Earth objects (NEOs),[3] orbit computations, and identification of asteroids (about one thousand, included 17 NEOs). The Observatory's focus is the examination and tracking of NEOs in Solar System.[4]

The Nysa asteroid 7866 Sicoli, discovered by Edward Bowell at Anderson Mesa Station in 1982, is named in his honor.[2]
