Yes, it's the Full Flower Moon Wednesday (and Thursday).

Yes, comet SWAN is moving northward and we should be able to see it toward the end of next week.

But the best use of your time between now and next Tuesday, when you can see the constellation Libra and it's three "coolest-ever named stars," is composing a poem rhyming Zubenelgenubi, Zubeneschmali, and Zubenelhakrabi.*
