Hi theSkyNet volunteers,
The International Astronomical Union is allowing astronomical organisations (like theSkyNet) to submit potential names for 20 exoplanet systems outside our Solar System.
We get to submit a name, and we'd like your help to choose it.
If you get suggesting with names (that follow the IAU rules, see below) on June 10th we'll compile all the suggestions and take a vote for what name to submit to the IAU on June 15th!
Put your suggestions in replies below. Don't forget to tell us which system your name suggestion is for, see the list linked below (and if you've got a reason why you think the name is good, then add that in too!)
The name must be 16 characters or less in length, preferably one word, pronounceable, non-offensive and not too similar to an existing name of an astronomical object (you can check your suggested name at Sesame Service or the Minor Planet Centre).
The names must not include names of pet animals, names of a purely or principally commercial nature, names of individuals, places or events principally known for political, military or religious activities, names of living individuals or names protected by trademarks or other forms of intellectual property.
More details on the rules are on the IAU website.
Happy suggesting! We're looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
