Benjamin Jekhowsky

Benjamin Jekhowsky ( _ru. Вениамин Павлович Жеховский, born 1881, died after 1953) was a Russian-Polish-French astronomer, born in Warsaw (at the time, Poland was part of the Russian empire). After 1934, he appears to have begun signing scientific articles as Benjamin de Jekhowsky. The Minor Planet Center credits his discoveries under the name "B. Jekhovsky" (with a "v"). In modern English transliteration, his name would be written as Zhekhovskii or Zhekhovsky. After attending Moscow University, he worked at the Paris Observatory beginning in 1912. Later he worked at the Algiers Observatory (at the time, Algeria was a colony of France), where he became known as a specialist in celestial mechanics. He discovered a number of asteroids, and the asteroid 1606 Jekhovsky is named after him. [cite web
