History of planetary motions

Dark when you get up, dark when you head home.  Even at 44 North, it's dark dark dark this time of year.  But word is that today the planet completes its leaning in one direction and is about to start rolling majestically back toward midsummer.

Y'know, if in a couple of days, somebody was watching carefully and noticed the days beginning to get longer again, wouldn't that be cause for a festival?

This blog may start observing our own seasonal festivities, so blogging may be light, unless inspiration or my co-bloggers strike.  We may do some review of historical highlights of 2011 in the new year, so feel free to email suggestions of best books and events.  

Merry Christmas to all and brighter days in 2012.
