The dwarf planet is today known as (225088) 2007 OR10

Astronomers have asked the public to help a non-planet in our Solar System discovered in 2007.

The dwarf planet, which thinks of the sun as Neptune, has since been named (225088) 2007 OR10.

Now, the scientists have found this to ask the public to help get a fishing name. The options are Gonggong, Holle and Vili.

The winning name will be formulated at the International Astronomical Union.

Gonggong is a Chinese water god with red hair and a snake-like tail. He is known to harm, causing flooding and chickens to grow.

Hollow is a European winter goodness of fertility, rebirths and women, while Vili is a northern deity who defeated the frost-gray Ymir and used the body to make the universe.

Scientists have chosen religions with links to the color red and wait the 12 years to call the planet to call it better to understand it.

2007 OR10, the largest unnamed body of our Solar system, is in a Kuiper belt and is determined to have a diameter of 775 kilometers (1,247 km), about half of Pluto's size, another dwerchplanet.

Stamp ends on May 10 and you can vote here.

Those who feel most about faith in one of the names can vote more than once.
