William Kwong Yu Yeung

William Kwong Yu Yeung ou Bill Yeung est un astronome amateur canadien né à Hong Kong utilisant des télescopes basés au Canada aux États-Unis dont le Desert Beaver Observatory.

C'est un découvreur prolifique d'astéroïdes qui a aussi découvert la comète périodique 172P/Yeung. Il a également découvert l'objet J002E3, dont on a d'abord cru qu'il s'agissait d'un astéroïde, mais qui s'est avéré être le 3e étage de la fusée d'Apollo 12.
