ORBIT: Discovery, Mars!
Grab your fly rods, Buckos, we're goin after the fire-breathin', saber-toothed, Martian, Loch Ness Rainbow Trout.
So proud o' this find, I named the lake after the greatest fisherman in all known history, well, my Dad. If that yonder pool is only a mudhole, no matter, ol' Pop will catch em anyways!

Will the banner hold?

Dear Mr. Steadman,
Ms. Annie Bennett forwarded your email to me because I am responsible for managing the database containing planetary names. I'm afraid that the naming process is long, involved and rather strict. You can read about the rules and regulations of the process on the web site which contains the Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature (http://wwwflag.wr.u sgs.gov/USGSFlag/Space/nomen/nomen.html).
If you have any questions about the naming process after looking at the web site, please feel free to write.

Attention Jennifer Blue:
Dear Ms Blue:
I'm just an ordinary citizen that found in the MGS MOC Mars images a lake, highly reflective and watery--well it looks like a lake! So I named the wondrous artifact, "Lake Steadman," thinking of my Dad, a great fisherman.
Also I published my findings, notes, dates of discovery and enhancements to the Internet and proudly sent notice to everybody I know.
I'm an artist, and therefore I took some liberties in visualizing the significance of the artifact, even seeing a wild resemblance in features along the cliffs to the great Egyptian temple Abu Simbel. Perhaps this is too much the imagination, but then I would cite as kindred, Lowell, Sagan, others, all in my opinion great dreamers as well as dedicated researchers.
I have received encouragement from Kathy Kasten, UCLA, to contact yourselves, also received other support such as:
5/13/99 4:36:51 PM Pacific Daylight Time: Kent: Great find. The lake deserves your name or that of your father. I studied Mars prior to going into our national space program, but nothing like this. Congratulations. Clark McClelland, Former ScO, Space Shuttle Fleet, Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
Wouldn't it be an awesome idea for NASA to recognize ordinary folks as partners in discovery? What a great handshake that would be!
I could use some help please. If you have any forms that need to be filled out I'd be most grateful if you would forward to:
Kent M. Steadman

ANCIENT SAGA: This first ship landed in a lush, fertile area we now call Egypt. The people began to bring back all the knowledge and lifestyles they had known from the past. The ship was taken and placed in a great vault, and a marker built over it, so that when the other clans arrived they would know where they were.
Over the course of the last 10,000 years, The Bluestars have landed in China, Mexico, England and most recently, America . . .
