Bob seems to be a much better name then pollux, maybe the IAU should give you a call Dave for more naming suggestions :lol: :wink:

Yeh, I'm quite good at it! I'm sure I could think of a few more... How about 'Sally'? That's a killer name...

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.

The planet has a minimum mass of 2.9 Jupiters

Hard to say something three times bigger than our largest planet is too small to be called a planet.
