I found out via both The Astronomy Blog and Cosmic Variance that this is De-Lurker Week. Translation: If youâ€šÃ„Ã´re listening, you are encouraged to say â€šÃ„Ãºhiâ€šÃ„Ã¹ and wave from the comments section.
Itâ€šÃ„Ã´s a slow news week. It appears everything was saved up for the AAS meeting, and now the well of discoveries runs dry. Comet McNaught is the media wonder child of the moment, but from here in the way too cold mid-West, all I can say is â€šÃ„ÃºI see clouds.â€šÃ„Ã¹
On a separate note, I was interviewed by Aaron Price of Slackapedia Galactica, and a former colleague from Slacker Astronomy. You can find the interview here.
