International Astronomical Union Clarifies Star Names
|Rigil Kentaurus and Proxima Centauri|
What does this mean for the average person? Not much really since the names of stars aren't really a topic of conversation for most people, but for those of us who pay attention to such things or write about such things, it's a little bit of adjustment. In order to stay current and up-to-date, I had to go back and revise some things in my current manuscript to reflect the changes.
