    Discovered 1971 October 26 by L. Kohoutek at Bergedorf.
    Named in honor of Miloš Tichý (1966- ), Czech astronomer at the Klet' Observatory. He is known for his work on minor planets and comets, discoveries of minor planets and mainly for confirmations and follow-up of NEOs (near-earth objects). In 1994, his technical expertise allowed the upgrade of Klet' observations with CCD cameras. Name proposed following a suggestion by his wife, Jana Tichá, on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of his first student assignment at Klet in 1984. (MPC 35481)
