SATELLITES OF (22) KALLIOPE AND (45) EUGENIA
     As noted on MPC 49221, the responsibility in the IAU for
naming satellites of minor planets was recently transferred from
the Working Group on Planetary System Nomenclature (WGPSN) to the
Committee on Small Bodies Nomenclature (CSBN), which at its
meetings in Sydney in July adopted the name "Linus" for the
satellite (22) Kalliope I = S/2001 (22) 1 (cf. IAUC 7703).  In the
same vein, three years ago, the WGPSN adopted the name "Petit
Prince" for the satellite (45) Eugenia I = S/1998 (45) 1 (cf. IAUC
7129).


SATELLITES OF JUPITER, SATURN, URANUS

     The IAU WGPSN has approved the following new designations and
names of satellites of major planets (cf. IAUC 5347, 7479, 7998, 8023):

    Jupiter XXVIII  Autonoe     = S/2001 J 1
    Jupiter XXIX    Thyone      = S/2001 J 2
    Jupiter XXX     Hermippe    = S/2001 J 3
    Jupiter XXXI    Aitne       = S/2001 J 11
    Jupiter XXXII   Eurydome    = S/2001 J 4
    Jupiter XXXIII  Euanthe     = S/2001 J 7
    Jupiter XXXIV   Euporie     = S/2001 J 10
    Jupiter XXXV    Orthosie    = S/2001 J 9
    Jupiter XXXVI   Sponde      = S/2001 J 5
    Jupiter XXXVII  Kale        = S/2001 J 8
    Jupiter XXXVIII Pasithee    = S/2001 J 6

    Saturn XIX      Ymir        = S/2000 S 1
    Saturn XX       Paaliaq     = S/2000 S 2
    Saturn XXI      Tarvos      = S/2000 S 4
    Saturn XXII     Ijiraq      = S/2000 S 6
    Saturn XXIII    Suttung     = S/2000 S 12
    Saturn XXIV     Kiviuq      = S/2000 S 5
    Saturn XXV      Mundilfari  = S/2000 S 9
    Saturn XXVI     Albiorix    = S/2000 S 11
    Saturn XXVII    Skadi       = S/2000 S 8
    Saturn XXVIII   Erriapo     = S/2000 S 10
    Saturn XXIX     Siarnaq     = S/2000 S 3
    Saturn XXX      Thrym       = S/2000 S 7

    Uranus XXI      Trinculo    = S/2001 U 1
