Happy Equinox!

The equinoxes are national holidays in Asia, including Japan. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a holiday in honor of the changing seasons, or anything related to the planet we inhabit? (Sure, we have Earth Day, but it's not a day off from work.)

Let's start a petition!

My friend had a special new moon party last night. I was able to see Jupiter and 5 of its moons with her binoculars because the sky was so clear. Amazing.

Okay, one more post and that scary hornet will be moved lower down on the page out of sight!

Yes, I never want to see that horrid thing again!! eep...

Anyway, I agree: the world needs stargazing parties, equinox parties, heck ANYTHING parties that make us remember our roles in the universe and the specialness of our brief lives.
