Re: Naming that asteroid Blount

I agree with Gino Robair on both counts...my vote would be for Le Sony'r Ra (if possible) and I also would not look forward to sorting through all of the innumerable composition and album titles. On the other hand, I was trying to think of a name that might convey the notion of an extraterrestrial body cruising through space delivering Sun Ra's musical messages to the universe. How did he accomplish this during his stay on Earth? Mainly through his issued recordings. How 'bout an asteroid named after his record label? Well..Saturn is already taken. There are alternate names associated with the label however...Thoth and Enterplan, for instance. I think a name linked directly with Sun Ra himself is my first choice (Le Sony'r Ra). If that doesn't fly, my second choice would be something derived from the Saturn label.
