- Palm Heinrich Ludwig von Boguslawsky (September 7, 1789 – June 5, 1851) was a Polish/German astronomy professor and observatory director in Breslau. Boguslawski detected a comet in 1835 and estimated its course. For this, the comet was named after him. He also did valuable observations and calculations of Biela's, Encke's and Halley's Comets, published contributions in astronomy magazines and participated in the publication of the magazine Uranus from 1842 to 1851.
