You can name a planet!

It looks like 'Snow White' will finally get a name. Her discoverers have put up a site for you to help them decide. Up until May 10th you can vote twice a day. Vote early and often!

Hi James,

Thanks for posting this !

Naturally I set up a chart for the date of its discovery (17 July 2007 at Palomar Observatory), though unfortunately, don't know the exact time. However, it looks like the Moon may have been in fiery Leo, possibly near Saturn in that Sign too.

Perhaps more importantly, at that time Jupiter was retrograde in Sag. and is now retro in Sag. again at this choosing of the name. Furthermore, Saturn in Leo was quincunx Pluto in Sag.

I think you can guess therefore, which of those 3 names I chose to vote for ?

Thanks again.

Best,
Admin.

'Snow White' is now the largest unnamed object in the Solar System. The next closest, 2002MS4, is much smaller. There probably won't be another of this size found that will be anywhere nearby; Planet Nine, when found, will be much larger but so far away that it's almost undetectable.

Here's an image of the major plutoids so you can get an idea of the significance of this.
