Tomáš Vorobjov (Czech pronunciation: [ˈtomaːʃ ˈvorobjou]; born 1984) is a Slovak amateur astronomer and an observer and discoverer of minor planets, in particular near-Earth objects.[2]

He is the director of the IASC Data Reduction Team[2] and is credited by the Minor Planet Center with the discovery of 7 numbered minor planets.[1]

In October 2012, Vorobjov discovered 276P/Vorobjov, a periodic comet and his first comet discovery.[3] He also discovered the trans-Neptunian object (TNO) (432949) 2012 HH2 in April 2012.[4]

The Florian main-belt asteroid 4858 Vorobjov, discovered by American astronomer James Gibson at Palomar in 1985, was named after him.[2]
