xi aquilae v2

The International Astronomical Union voting for their NameExoWorlds competition that MBO is participating in will be closing this weekend (MBO solicited suggestions for entries from members of the public as part of National Science Week 2014).

In June Mount Burnett Observatory selected the names “Ezu” and “Heroicos” from those suggestions as its submission to the competition for the star xi Aquilae and its exoplanet xi Aquilae b, and you can vote for them here.
