Tamara Mikhaylovna Smirnova (Russian: Тама́ра Миха́йловна Смирно́ва; 1935–2001) was a Soviet/Russian astronomer and a discoverer of minor planets and comets.[2]

CareerEdit

From 1966 to 1988, Smirnova was a staff member of the Institute of Theoretical Astronomy at Leningrad.[2] She is credited by the Minor Planet Center with the discovery of 135 numbered minor planets during 1966–1984.[1] She also co-discovered the periodic comet 74P/Smirnova-Chernykh, along with Nikolai Stepanovich Chernykh.

The main-belt asteroid 5540 Smirnova, discovered by herself in 1971, was named in her honor following a proposal by the Institute of Theoretical Astronomy.[2] Naming citation was published on 17 March 1995 (M.P.C. 24917).[3]
