With no big to-do about it, I’m bringing back this blog’s astroscience and Astronomy Picture of the Day feature. This weekend, the New Horizons probe is getting closer to its flyby of Pluto, planet or not, and the its first detailed surface photos. I’ve heard that there are even names picked out for any features that may be discovered, Spock, for example for a possible mountain, to honor the late Leonard Nimoy‘s Star Trek role, as opposed to the Terran child psychologist of the same name ;-) I’m continuing from here a feature suggested by stellar blogger and authoress Sharmishtha Basu “Ze Cats for Ze Caturday,” because as the personal pet monkey of the dread Feline Overlord, the diabolical Mr. Eccles, it would just not be Caturday without cats.
So, good morning to all, and as Kai’Siri say…
