Names for Minor Planets and Comets
This is a bot project, but the official name for asteroids and comets is the assigned IAU number and name, not the provisional designation from the minor planet center. For instance 69230 Hermes (1937 UB) is the full name for this object. The first thing is the IAU designation number, second is the IAU name, and then lastly is the MPC provisional designation, which is kept around so that observer's can tie observations from before the official recognition (i.e. numbering) of the object. Currently, all the objects have the permanent official number in parentheses and the provisional designation not in parenthesis. This needs to be reversed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:40, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
