Hendrik van Gent (1900 – March 29 1947, Amsterdam) was a Dutch astronomer.

He moved to South Africa in 1928 in order to observe the southern sky at the Leiden Southern Station and the Union Observatory in Johannesburg. He studied variable stars, and also discovered a number of asteroids and comets. The Van Gent lunar crater on the far side of the Moon is named for him.

He died of a heart attack while on leave in the Netherlands.
