National UK Student Competition

Do you want the chance to name an asteroid ? Would you like to own your own meteorite ?

Then get your thinking caps on and try to come up with a good name for an asteroid recently discovered by the Faulkes Telescope Project.

The competition winner will have their chosen name submitted to the Minor Planet Center (MPC) for consideration, as well as receiving a real piece of meteorite.

The MPC is the internationally recognised organisation responsible for the naming of minor bodies (including asteroids) in the Solar System.

Two runners up will also receive their very own meteorites.
