10th Red Planet Pojmanski Enceladus

Astronomy tidbits...

I've been getting up between 4:30 and 5:00 to look for Comet Pojmanski, but have failed to see it -- either cloudy or too hazy.

The announcement that Enceladus has liquid water was on the front page of the Daily Yomiuri yesterday. I wonder where it ranks on American newspapers -- I didn't even see it in the New York Times headlines at all, but maybe I just missed it.

The best news of the day is that the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter successfully inserted into orbit around Mars.

And, as we speak, I'm watching Mike Brown's Watson Lecture on the discovery of the 10th planet.
