Thank you for participating in our campaign to select the names for features on Pluto and Charon.

This campaign is being coordinated by the SETI Institute and by Dr. Mark Showalter, a member of the New Horizons Science Team. The campaign has been developed in consultation with the New Horizons Project and with the International Astronomical Union (IAU). The IAU will have final say over how the selected names are used on Pluto and Charon.

See the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for more information about this campaign and about the naming process.
