East Village astronomy aficionado Felton Davis sends along the following...
High drama in the skies tonight, as Orion's long pursuit of the Pleiades is interrupted by Aldebaran disappearing behind the 10-day-old waxing Moon. Orion has been chasing the "Seven Sisters" across the winter heavens since antiquity, and will not catch them for another 30 million years. Of course by that time, both the hunter and the sisters will be 30 million years older, and the urgency of the chase somewhat dimmed.
In the meantime, the Moon passes through Taurus tonight and will occult Aldebaran — the 14th brightest star after the Sun — at about 9:30 p.m. Join me in front of The Bean at 2nd Avenue and East 3rd Street, at 9 p.m., to witness the occultation.
Didn't the Death Star blow up Aldebaran?
That was Alderaan, grump (sez the resident Star Wars nerd). But the confusion is understandable.
Where's the Kardashians? Can't keep up with them I guess.
Reese, Dakota, Charlize, Miley, Q'orianka, Keira, Angelina, last but the least, J-Law, had them all [or maybe only in my dreams, as real as they may seem, maybe they were only on my dreams]. Everytime I'm telling secrets
I remember how it used to be,and I realized how much I miss them, and I realize how it feels to be free. Now I see I'm up to no good (no, no, no)...
3:27 I lulzed:)
