- Edwin Powell Hubble(November 20, 1889 – September 28, 1953) was an American astronomer. Hubble's arrival at Mount Wilson in 1919 coincided roughly with the completion of the 100-inch Hooker Telescope, then the world's largest telescope. Hubble and Milton L. Humason discovered a rough proportionality of the objects' distances with their redshifts.
- Name given by Arthur and Whitaker in Rectified Lunar Atlas (1963) and approved by IAU in 1964 (Whitaker, 1999, p.234).
