On a lighter note --

A fair number of astronomers that I know are also cyclists, so this might be of some interest. You can tour the world's largest scale model of the solar system by bike on the Interplanetary Bicycle Ride in Peoria Illinois. Did this ride a couple of years ago, it was pretty cool!

Sweet the coming on
Of grateful evening mild; then silent night
With this her solemn bird and this fair moon,
And these the gems of heaven, her starry train.

Cool! Speaking of cycling, anyone got ideas for transporting a 6" f/8 newt by bike?
