Naming The Planets

We're discovering a lot of new planets lately.

The organization responsible for naming planets is the International Astronomical Union.

And they're running a contest. First, they allowed astronomy clubs and similar organizations to put together a list of proposals for names for 20 exo planets. Now it's time for the rest of us.

Go to this link to vote on names. I'm putting mine in right now. (Yeah, yeah, I should be working, but how can I resist?)
