Next week is the winter 215th AAS meeting, this time in D.C..  I'll be there presenting there Thursday on Project Calliope, the ScientificBlogging music satellite I'm building in my basement for a 2010/2011 launch, and tweeting about the meeting in general.

To usher in the new year, I'll close with 2 haikus from Cosmic Haiku:
Microwave Background
Photons remember a time
When they were hotter

Is what I’m told is my Job
Title. Whatever.

Happy New Year!

Alex, the Daytime Astronomer
