Caturday’s Astrophenia | 2015.11.21

namaskar. This week, I’m rolling out graphic headers for all themed posts, and this installment’s features my favorite diabolical psycho fluffy furniture-destroyers Mr. Eccles and Rockykins.

The week has been good, with much accomplished but less study than I’d have liked, but that’s my only complaint – I’ll live.

This post from here on out will be published biweekly, so I’m featuring the Astronomy Picture of the Day links for the previous two weeks.

Thanks to twitterer @Ravenpenny for the inspiration to make and use graphic headers, and to Sharmishtha Basu for a huge portion of the inspiration to keep blogging.

I’m woefully behind in my studies, so there are Bengali books calling my name this morning and coming afternoon.
