75569 IRSOL

This minor planet is named after the Institute IRSOL, or the Istituto Ricerche Solari Locarno, a solar physics research institute in Locarno, Switzerland. This observatory has been associated with a number of different universities and private organizations over its lifetime, originally with Universitäts-Sternwarte Göttingen (USWG) in Germany, and now with Università della Svizzera italiana (USI). IRSOL has a research focus in solar spectropolarimetry.

The symbol of this minor planet is a telescope, as in the symbol for Telescopium, tangent to a small Sun above.
