    Agreed... but I'm at a loss what to do... The labels now are so "meh".... But as we see deeper and deeper we're going to have passles of SNs to name.

    I propose that the next SN be named Lydia.... like hurricanes....

    I'm thinking that the IAU could announce SN names with "dwarf dwarf dwarf dwarf spammity spam"as festive background music.
    chas53, helicon64 and bladekeeper like this.
