  • About this dictionary

The Dictionary of Minor Planet Names, fifth Edition, is the official reference for the field of the IAU, which serves as the internationally recognised authority for assigning designations to celestial bodies and any surface features on them. The accelerating rate of the discovery of minor planets has made this Addendum to this established compendium necessary. It covers all newly published names from the period 2003-2005 as well as corrections and amendments to earlier editions.
