    Ahem. Have you forgotten the Moon?? It's not a dark, starry night if the Moon is out! Especially right close to it.

    If there's demand for for more stars, I'll add them. But what are we doing here? Connecting with history or connecting with alternative histories? They used the nine lunars stars. Incidentally, my site was not down, not for more than 90 seconds in any case, at any time in the past several weeks. I check it regularly (automatically).
