Arab Weather - Moroccan Initiative for Science and Thought

As part of the International Astronomical Union's 100th anniversary celebration, the association named the star “WASP-161” and the planet orbiting it to a Moroccan national committee headed by Zouhair Benkhaldoun, head of the Oukaimeden Observatory, because of the Moroccan researcher Ph.D.

The committee received various proposals from active astronomical associations in Morocco, including the Moroccan Initiative for Science and Thought, which proposed a name for the star Mazilia Mazilia, meaning the kind girl, an ancient name for the Kingdom of Morocco before birth, and the name of the planet Tin Hinan.
