VERY cool. But I personally want that star to have an equally cool name. SM0313 just doesn't cut it. Maybe someone should have a "naming contest"
for this star - it's too astounding to just move on and dismiss. Needs a public marketing plan, imho.
Being a Babylon 5 fan from decades ago I say we name it 'Lorien', or just 'the First
One'... kinda melodramatic, but fitting.

I love it! May I have permission to make that a motion at my astronomy society? It is a very well renowned one and they have high level contacts, it
could see the light of day! Being a Sci Fi fan myself and something of a Trekkie I suggest Vulcan or Romulus!
But as an avid reader of Sherlock
Holmes and having had my Sherlock Holmes story published I was thinking we could name it Moriarty since Professor Moriarty was a professor of physics
and astronomy and did publish a paper on the dynamics of an asteroid.
I think it would be cool. Sir ACD would be chuffed to bits I am sure.
