Nickname a Distant World

On January 1, 2019, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft will fly past a small, distant, and cold world at the outer frontier of our solar system. The spacecraft is about to set the record for visiting the most remote world ever explored by humankind. For now, the destination goes by the unexciting name “(486958) 2014 MU69”, or “MU69” for short. NASA would like to use a more memorable nickname when they talk about the target body.

Voting has been extended to midnight US Eastern time on Wednesday, December 6
