| Exoplanetary Scratchpad|
A big planet for a big star. It's only one star away from being a pole star itself in the ancient days (neighboring Thuban was one). Its one of the only bright planet bearing stars visible in the northern Summer.
It's in the constellation Draconis, so obviously a dragon themed name would work. It was discovered by california
- Yamatanoorochi - Yamatanoorochi is a dragon of the legend which appears in the ancient Izumo myth of Japan. - Quadrantids(iota Draconids) appear in January every year.
The spectacular view of shooting stars is seen as fire spouting from the mouth of Yamatanoorochi. Oh, this has a dragon and association with the meteor shower. That's got a couple points. I think I'll vote for it.
- Herensuge - It was the vasque mitology dragon, that use to fly around small towns throuwing fire.
This is basque mythology. Any reason Basque was picked?
- Foros - According to one version Edasich-star hyena attacks the camels, so here is a giant planet may be called chance - Foros. - Foros translated from arabic as a chance
What the, a hyena? Is this the name of the star in another culture, that would be cool.
- Appin - From the imaginary book "Red book of Appin", it's in folklore and some novels. - Red book of Appin" is an imaginary book about magic,it's in folklore in the UK.
The radiant of Quadrantids meteor shower is very close to iota Dragonis, and iota Dragonis b is first planet around giant star. Therefore this planet may be very strange like magic, however a human being will solve it by magic called astronomy. We put such meanings into that name. Interesting fact that the quadrantids meteor show is close, and a magic book sounds like a cool name for a planet. Not sure if I'd want it though.
