IMPORTANT NOTICE (2001 Sept. 11):
We regret that this form ceased to function following an upgrade of the OS on the webserver (note that no recompilation or relinking was performed...). Until such time as this form is fixed, use this mailto link. Be SURE to click on the "Send Plain Text Only" button (do NOT send html-encoded e-mail).
Try to follow the IAUC conventions regarding textual items (e.g., affiliations, units, references, defining acronymns, etc.). Include references as much as possible, to explain any concept that is not obvious to general astronomy readers; reference to previous items regarding the same object on IAUCs is particularly encouraged. References should be given as follows: last name of author, year of publication, journal name volume number, page number. (In the case of two authors, both last names should be given; in the case of more than two authors, give only the first author's last name, followed by et al.; example: Clinton et al. 1925, Ap.J. 252, 16.) Those reporting discoveries of new objects need to give full information regarding proper sources (atlases, catalogues, etc.) that have been checked, in order to bolster their evidence.
To avoid delays, please use
IAUC procedures for listing authors (first and middle
initials, last full name; maximum of three authors, if possible),
affiliations (providing FULL institutional names, not abbreviated
names or acronyms unless defined first,
with diacritical marks in TeX form;
amateurs should not give their
private observatory name but rather city/town and state/country),
units (s for seconds, optical wavelengths in nm, instrument
apertures in meters, etc.; use
TeX notation for exponents, subscripts,
and special math characters;
give positions to proper number of digits -- R.A. usually given
to one more significant digit than Decl., e.g.), and times (give to
decimals of a day in Universal Time; never use MJD), etc.
