Question: Simple question. What is the website address that I may gain access to the recorded bodies and there naming conventions? — Chuck
Answer: The International Astronomical Union (IAU) maintains a web site which contains all of the information regarding the recommended naming of astronomical objects. Within this web site you can also find links to other web pages that contain information on known solar system objects (comets, asteroids, near-earth objects, etc.) As for a list of solar system objects which concentrates on planets, moons, and asteroids (small bodies), I like the nineplanets.org site. This web site contains detailed descriptions of all of the major bodies in the solar system.
