Pet Peeve (this month). We're missing a teaching opportunity. All the news items I have seen say 'planets will be ALIGNED. Looking with nekked eye, they're ALWAYS aligned. Teach people about the Ecliptic. I've found folks are really surprised. What? All the planets, the Sun and the Moon appear to move and appear in a LINE? WOW! Thanks, Mr. Smartypants. How do you know these things. You must be very intelligent!
