Pamela M. Kilmartin is a New Zealand astronomer and a co-discoverer of minor planets and comets.[2]

She is credited by the Minor Planet Center with the discovery of 41 asteroids, all in collaboration with her husband, the astronomer Alan C. Gilmore.[1] Both astronomers are also active comet-hunters. She is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand (RASNZ) and co-director of its "Comets and Minor Planets" section.[2][3]

The minor planet 3907 Kilmartin, discovered by Max Wolf in 1904, was named in her honour.[2] Naming citation was published on 21 April 1989 (M.P.C. 14482).[4] In 1983, the Eunomia asteroid 2537 Gilmore was already named after both, Alan and Pamela Gilmore.[5]
