anon. edits to data[edit]


Sorry about this, but I generally revert any unexplained, anonymous-IP change to data. Too many vandals running around changing technical details they hope no-one will notice – and sometimes the damage is not noticed for several years. — kwami (talk) 17:42, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Is cool. It's what I thought, too, when I first saw it. I'm ambivalent on which number we actually want there, but we should be consistent across all pages (not just Saturn) with whichever choice. Tbayboy (talk) 18:44, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Haumea ref[edit]


This doesn't make sense. A 2011 measurement can't be ref'd to a 2009 publication. If the actual source ref's Brown et al, then I think either the date of the measurment should be changed to the original measurement, or the new ref should be use with the explanation that they came up with a new interpretation of B's data. — kwami (talk) 16:07, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

The Dumas ref was 2011. It does not give a new measurement, it just refers to the 2009 measurement by Ragozzine. The 2011 VLT parenthetical is incorrect, I'll remove it. I should have seen that! I got caught up in the ref without looking at the rest of it. The VLT refers to the spectroscopy mentioned in the Dumas paper, but it has nothing to do with the size estimate used in that paper.

Reverted you because your edit summary didn't make sense to me, per Talk. But I'm not defending the Sedna entry either, and it does seem rather unlikely that we have a useful mass estimate for the region. — kwami (talk) 19:41, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Brown's possible dwarf planet list[edit]

Thanks for your message. A look on Brown's page showed me a number of object sizes were reestimated again... Ambi Valent (talk) 01:51, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
