Since the IAU haven't defined extra-solar bodies, it can't formally be called a planet. It could a a Dwarf or even a small extra-solar system body.

In the interim, I'd like to suggest we refer to it as 'Bob'.

:wink:

Since the subject line says it was "found in Gemini's Brightest Star" you can probably call it what you like :-)

Corona possibly :wink:
