Johann Palisa (December 6, 1848 - May 2, 1925) was a Czechoslovakian-Austrian astronomer. He was a prolific discoverer of asteroids, discovering 122 in all. In 1872, at the age of 24, Palisa became the director of the Austrian Naval Observatory in Pola. While at Pola, he discovered his first asteroid, 136 Austria, on March 18, 1874. Along with this, he discovered twenty-seven minor planets and one comet.
