      Catch that conjunction with Mars last night? It was within half a degree of the Moon from the southern US – probably got occulted as seen from the Canadian Arctic.

      How about a title? It’s 5429 :)

    3. Jay Manifold Says:

      Well, that or “Lunation 1051.”

      Jay: What?

      Carl: Here’s your title. “Lunation” was taken :)

      Woof, woof, arf!

      You know, that was intended as a wolfish howl, but it seems I am too domesticated for that (and please, nobody scratch me behind the ears, that would add insult to injury).

      Well, then, OWOOOOO!
