Talking about all the nicknames that now are popular in astronomy.
"The Super Wolf Blood Moon". Really? Asterisms are one thing, but I just think for the other stuff it is ridiculous.
There were always a few named deep sky objects like the Whirlpool galaxy, the Black-eye galaxy, the Lagoon Nebula, etc. But now.....heck just make them up. How about the Paper Clip galaxy? The Eraser nebula. The Jack in the Beanstalk nebula, the Sushi galaxy. Last week I swept up another faint galaxy with my 16", at the limit of visibility. Thus I will forever in all writings wish it to be referred to as 'The Puff of Smoke Galaxy". And next months full moon is nothing special. I fully expect newspapers across the country to herald "The Bland Kitten White Moon".
Okay. I have vented. Thank you for allowing me to vent.
