Asteroid Scagell
In December 2003 we learned that asteroid 24728 has been named after Robin Scagell, proprietor of Galaxy Picture Library. Here is the citation published by the International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Center:
(24728) Scagell = 1991 VO2
Discovered 1991 Nov 11 by B. G. W. Manning at Stakenbridge.
Robin Scagell (b. 1946) joined the Junior  Astronomical Society, now the Society for Popular Astronomy, in 1962 and is now vice president. He established the West of London Astronomical Society in 1967. Often asked by the media to comment on astronomical events, he operates the Galaxy Picture Library of astronomical images.
The asteroid, 5 km in diameter, orbits in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter some 350 million miles from the Sun. In early 2004 it is in Leo, at about 18th magnitude – that is about 10,000 times fainter than can easily be seen using binoculars. No pictures of it are immediately available.

Neither the asteroid nor Robin Scagell poses any threat to civilisation as we know it.

Here is a closeup of an asteroid of similar size, named Annefrank:
