New Moon Over Kentucky
Possibly the coolest thing to happen this year: Earth got a new moon – or else it’s just another piece of space garbage, the astronomers haven’t reached a consensus yet. This moon, unlike the disgustipating “second moon” Cruithne, apparently has a proper orbity-shaped orbit, too. Hurrah!
(Cruithne enjoys a “special relationship” with the Earth – the kind of special relationship it can’t tell its mother about – sharing our orbit around the sun in a freaky 1:1 resonance pattern. To validate this relationship by calling Cruithne a proper moon would destroy the very moral fiber of society. I’m sure the Bible is against it, too.)
