    LOL. Yes, very  exclusive membership. While I was looking around the net for
    alternative namings  of Zubenelgenubi, I came across a transcript of one of
    Jack Horkheimer's  astronomy radio/tv spots. He's the "Star Hustler" and does
    short programs on  basic stargazing. One from a few years back was titled
    "Zubenelgenubi and  Zubeneschamali: The Two Stars Of Summer You Just Love To
    Pronounce".
    
    Still curious: anyone know when and where the list of "57 Navigational
    Stars" was created?
