Invitation to vote for the name of a planetary system or star


You can’t give a planet any random name but you need to vote, without registration needed. Explanations for the names of the 20 host stars, in addition to personal messages from some of the scientists who discovered them, are available on on the NameExoWorlds website. The name voting ends October 31, at 23:59 UTC. The clubs and/or non-profit organizations that successfully propose a winning ExoWorld name will receive a plaque and will be eligible to propose a name for a minor planet. The IAU is an international astronomical organisation of more than 10 000 professional astronomers from more than 90 countries which serves as the internationally recognised authority for assigning designations to celestial bodies and their surface features.
