  1. I'm going to brave the bitter winter temperatures here in Tampa and venture out into the upper 60 degree night tomorrow night to see this celestial wonder.

  2. Wait until MId March - tonight they are still pretty far apart.

  3. "An Alignment of Planets"

    Uh... any two planets are always "aligned", no?

  4. I don't find the vertices of triangles (or the ends of line segments) particularly exciting.

  6. @Bobn

    Any two points can seemingly be aligned, but not there is more to space than meets the eye (scientists aren't even sure if the universe is flat, round or curved).

    When it comes to a visual alignment, it is usually true that the objects we see as being aligned are nowhere near each other and cannot form anywhere near close to a straight line.
