I used to have clippings from our local daily with the report that the observer who actually was being credited with the discovery of the "moon" was using the non-formal name of "Charlie", because he had had a dog named that, and he "always wanted to name something after the dog".

It was for a time called Vulcan; this was before Star Trek aired so there is no connection. (unsigned)
You could not be MORE wrong, either as to the name or the date. Star Trek originally aired in 1965-69, this was in 1974. There was a hypothetical PLANET inside of Mercury's orbit named Vulcan, reported as being discovered in the 1700's and early 1800's. CFLeon 23:11, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
"The Buck Rogers Sunday strips feature a visit to Mercury's moon in "Exploring the Water Moon of Mercury" (1/13/35 to 3/17/35) (Series I, Strips 251 to 260)" Un;ess this was created before we knew what mercury was really like(and therfor before this moon was thought to exist) I really gotta question the ignorance of those writers.--Jakezing (talk) 01:37, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
