Asteroid (3673) Levy [Winchester Observatory image] This is a list of asteroids whose names are known to have a Canadian connection, usually because they are named after a Canadian.

This resource was created by Peter Jedicke, and is now curated by Eric Briggs. Where the citation given here expands upon the official citation, the added material was edited by either Peter or Eric, who are solely responsible for any errors or omissions. Note that for some asteroids, particularly more recent designations, the short, official citation is included on JPL's orbit applet page.
