The Old Editor:  For our Oregon readers, what is antiquity, LL ?

The Avenue Cat:  Antiquity is usually something before the Middle Age. Egypt is hard at work reopening their history.  We should send some Democrats over, and they would stop that heresy.

The French Wokers are trying to turn Notre Dame Cathedral into Disney Wokerland.  The Pope is a Communist and doesn’t care.  He might want to add a Planned Parenthood Clinic.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Comet Leonard and the Whale Galaxy
Image Credit & Copyright: Gregg Ruppel

Explanation: Sweeping through northern predawn skies, on November 24 Comet Leonard (C/2021 A1) was caught between two galaxies in this composite telescopic image. Sporting a greenish coma the comet’s dusty tail seems to harpoon the heart of NGC 4631 (top) also known as the Whale Galaxy. Of course NGC 4631 and NGC 4656 (bottom, aka the Hockey Stick) are background galaxies some 25 million light-years away. On that date the comet was about 6 light-minutes from our fair planet. Its closest approach to Earth (and even closer approach to Venus) still to come, Comet Leonard will grow brighter in December. Already a good object for binoculars and small telescopes, this comet will likely not return to the inner Solar System. Its perihelion, or closest approach to the Sun, will be on January 3, 2022.

NGC 6822: Barnard’s Galaxy
Image Credit & Copyright: Dietmar Hager, Eric Benson

Explanation: Grand spiral galaxies often seem to get all the glory, flaunting their young, bright, blue star clusters in beautiful, symmetric spiral arms. But small galaxies form stars too, like nearby NGC 6822, also known as Barnard’s Galaxy. Beyond the rich starfields in the constellation Sagittarius, NGC 6822 is a mere 1.5 million light-years away, a member of our Local Group of galaxies. A dwarf irregular galaxy similar to the Small Magellanic Cloud, NGC 6822 is about 7,000 light-years across. Brighter foreground stars in our Milky Way have a spiky appearance. Behind them, Barnard’s Galaxy is seen to be filled with young blue stars and mottled with the telltale pinkish hydrogen glow of star forming regions in this deep color composite image.
