Which 'Astronomical Society', and can you state your sources where you found these many planets?

About the "Astronomical Society"- I was referring to International Astronomy Union (IAU) on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internati ... nomy_Union. The suggested names for Centaurian planets came from a short article of "Alpha Centauri Bb: Why Are New Planet Names So Dull?" on http://www.bbc.com/future/story/2012110 ... es-so-dull.
* I got Chiron from Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri game.
* I got Ares, Phadora, Domatholos from James Cameron's Avatar Science Fiction series.
* I got Caladan and Arrakis from Frank Herbert's Dune Science Fiction series.
* There is a name of Feronia suggested for Proxima b on https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/in ... a-centauri. I got rest of information from my private dream journals I wrote about precognitve dream trips I had to nearby exosolar systems in our solar neighborhood, in addition to nine planets in our own Solar System few years ago.

What I want to know is where you got the idea from the many planets for the Alpha Centaury system. If you have them out of your 'dream journals', they do not belong in this thread.
This thread is for real exoplanets only.
You can create your own thread for it. And for other objects from your dream journals.

JackDole's quote: "Here you can publish scripts for new exoplanets. This thread is only for real objects."
My apologies...now I understood that I cannot publish any imaginative or unknown worlds here that are NOT discovered yet, nor from the dreams, in this thread but in a separate thread. Thank you for explaining a rule very clearly to me. I shall concur with it.
"Twin Earths Discovered for Alpha Centauri B?" may be found on the NEW SCIENTIST website's:  https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn ... tar-system.  Both of those two exoplanets are very hot like Venus and closest to the primary star. Gravitational tidal forces of Alpha Centauri triple star system can easily explain the total absence of giant gaseous planets like Jupiter there- from the SCIENCE article on https:// http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018/04/ ... st-stellar. Some of Earth-like exoplanets may be inhabitable considering very low x-ray emission of Alpha Centauri companion stars A & B....see an article "Planets Orbiting Alpha Centauri Stars Not Bombarded By X-Ray Radiation Hazardous To Life" on https://www.techtimes.com/articles/2298 ... us-to-life.

The scripts for the Pulsar contained a bug. I corrected it. (Hopefully.)
