Reference work entry

Discovered 1905 May 28 by P. Götz at Heidelberg.

This name is an allusion to C. Pulfrich’s stereo-comparator (see also his paper in AN 159, 83 (1902)), by the aid of which he discovered a planet which had previously been overlooked on older photographic plates. It was the first planet discovered by the method and was later identified with Stereoskopia. (H 60)
