Kazimierz Kordylewski (born 11 October 1903 in Poznań - 11 March 1981 in Kraków, Poland) was a Polish astronomer.

Kazimierz Kordylewski, April 1964.

In 1956, he claimed the discovery of the Kordylewski clouds, large transient concentrations of dust at the Trojan points of the Earth-Moon system, which were reported to have been confirmed to exist in October 2018.[1][2][3]

He studied at Posen University and Jagiellonian University, and earned a Ph.D. degree in 1932.[4]
