Additional Information


  • Named for Sergey Pavlovich von Glazenap (September 13, 1848 - April 12, 1937), a Soviet astronomer, honorary member of the Soviet Academy of Sciences (1929), and Hero of Socialist Labor (1932).
  • The name Glasenapp was originally proposed by Lamèch for Calippus A (a crater southwest of Calippus and east of Theaetetus), but his proposal was not adopted by the IAU. The name Glasenap was assigned to this one in Menzel, 1971 (see Whitaker, p. 228).
  • The IAU spelling was changed to Glazenap at some later date.
