NEW COMET NAMES AND NEW NUMBERINGs OF SHORT-PERIOD COMETS
     The following name has been voted upon by the IAU Working Group on
Small Body Nomenclature for a recently discovered comet:

Designation (Name)                   Discovery Reference
351P/Wiegert-PANSTARRS                  CBET 4439
C/2017 O1 (ASASSN)                      CBET 4414

     Further to CBETs 4376 and 4439, the following permanent numbers have
been assigned to short-period comets based upon their being securely
observed at multiple returns to perihelion.
