Planets fill skies with rare views (http://www.baltimoresun.com/features/bal-to.planets06may06.story?coll=bal-features-headlines) appeared in my hometown paper this morning, with local quotes added, but I'd just like to point out that, contrary to what it says in the fourth paragraph ("Uranus, Neptune and Pluto can't be seen with the naked eye."}, Uranus (http://mentock.home.mindspring.com/xmasstar.htm) can be seen with the naked eye, it just has to be dark enough (http://www.darksky.org). And you...uh...have to be sharp enough.

I'm just waiting for a $^&$#@ clear night for once! I don't think we've had one here yet!
