Object name: PAL2
The 15 Palomar globular clusters were found by scrounging the POSS 1 plates back in the 1950's. This was done by astronomers looking for other objects so many contributed to the list. Since no one name could be put on the list it was named for the observatory. Those finding one or more include Harlton Arp while looking for his famous peculiar galaxies and George Abell looking for planetaries and galaxy clusters. Other contributors you might have heard of are Edwin Hubble, Walter Baade and Fritz Zwicky.
