m³hello*, I'm Exoplanetaryscience! I like to edit wikipedia's astronomy-related topics. So far I have made pages on:

(Kuiper belt and Oort cloud objects)


(Aten asteroids)


(star clusters)


(planet types)

(near-Earth asteroids)

(astronomy websites)


(impact craters)

(asteroid features)

(nearby stars)



(brown dwarves)


(Insterstellar objects)

(hyperbolic objects)


(stellar events)

(impact events)


^ ^ ^ I substantially contributed to/overhauled the article in question, but did not create it.

I also use my un-logged-in account, [4]**, for more general edits in errors and more data.

Hello Exoplanetaryscience.Recently you have signed my guestbook! Thank you very much for signing my guestbook. Cheers.Face-smile.svg--Pratyya (Hello!) 07:48, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
Original Barnstar Hires.png The Original Barnstar
Thank you very much for your kind message on my talk page, I am honoured that you were thinking of RfA. I'm not sure whether I'm coming or going to be honest, I left for a few months at the beginning of August, and had a look in a few months later but couldn't build up any enthusiasm. It's more than likely I'll come back at some point, but we'll see. Thank you for your support. All the best, Matty.007 12:01, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Barnstar for keeping the New Horizons and Pluto articles as up to date as possible. Well done!!! --LL221W (talk) 05:51, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Baklava - Turkish special, 80-ply.JPEG Many thanks for keeping an eye on the John Bowman Lindsay article and reverting the maniac who keeps trying to change the spelling. Given the DNB, his grave stone and signature (and every other reference) all spell it Lindsay, I can't imagine what the mystery "changer" is trying to prove!

Projects being undertaken

  • Project Category Sort Terminology - to come up with an efficient and easily-navigable way to browse through categories on wikipedia.
  • Project NGC objects - to make a wikipedia article for every object in the NGC catalog - all 7840 of them.

Outside of wikipedia

  • Project Milky Way - an attempt at making a 3D catalog of every star with a measured parallax in the Milky Way
  • Project Solar System - another projection attempt, this one making a 3D map of the Solar System, every asteroid and comet and planet.
  • Project Galaxies - Yet another projection to make a 3D map of every galaxy with a measured redshift.
  • Project ZOAG - To map every galaxy and nebula hidden in the Zone of Avoidance (ZOA) - the area that the Milky Way covers - using SDSS and DSS images.

And many more.

Whatever's going on in X1-12 right now

Astronomy contributions

  • Helped recover 2008 VM49 (SDSS observations in early 2009 that expanded the observation arc from a few days to a couple months, allowing further recovery by the Mount Lemmon Survey and PANSTARRS
  • Precovered 2013 FZ27 from SDSS observations in 2001
  • Precovered 2011 GM27 from SDSS observations in 2006.
