Huh, there really are ten year olds here on CN. Who would have thought?

 

No one else could create and grow such a non-intellectual thread.

Martin, The moon smells like burnt gunpowder, not a wet rock.  Please help add to the intellectual level of the thread...

Thanks Jaimo. Interesting.

 

I was merely guessing, of course.

 Uranus will always be the butt ...

 

Maybe they should have named it George after all.

George? They should have called it Steve. It's a pretty name. 

 

Steve, aka Planet 7 from Outer Space, has a remarkable teal colouration in the eyepiece, like a patch of some tropical sea that has somehow found itself in the sky. This colour is particularly pronounced when viewed with a well collimated 152 mm refractor.

If we keep making jokes about Ur**** will the IAU kick it out of the solar system like Pluto?
