<<NGTS JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSSAa>> N: about 100 + ? Object:Planet + Host * + *  (SIMBAD class: Unknown = Object of Unknown Nature) Note:The Next Generation Transit Survey (NGTS) is a survey for transiting exoplanets based at the ESO Paranal observatory in Chile. The project is described in https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stx2836 The discovery of the exoplanet NGTS-1b is described in https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stx2778
We use the format NGTS-NNNa to name the planet, and NGTS-NNN when referring to the host star.
We plan to use the NGTS JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSS system for all the stars we detect (many millions).
