A somewhat familiar fall. March 18, 2013 Posted by Mookie
Just like Celesto fell through the void locked in combat with the Infernomancer, Dominic plummets towards the Elemecca, locked in combat with The Beast. Only he's falling through a... Lost Treasure of Luana spiral.

I finally spotted Comet PanSTARRS last night, thanks to my mother-in-law who was kind enough to lend me binoculars. It was a little difficult to spot, what with errant light pollution and my unsteady hands, but despite all that I was still able to see an actual comet with my own two eyes, in real time.

That's the thrill of amateur astronomy / stargazing for me. To search for a celestial object, without the aid of tracking computers or electronic maps, scanning the night sky with binoculars or a telescope, and triumphantly proclaiming "there it is!" when you find it. Some nights you don't succeed, and there are no triumphant proclamations, but you wait for the next clear night and try again. The victory is worth the wait.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
