  Kerberos; I can't tell timeOct 24, 2015 11:12 AM PDT | url
Added 1 new A* page:NASA's New Horizons probe has returned a photo of Pluto's moon Kerberos, a tiny little thing now seen to be composed to two lobes, like the Dawn spacecraft found at comet 67P—likely two objects that came together, in this case objects about 8 and 5 kilometers across.
I may get some extra art streaming in this weekend 'cause I gotta get some sketching/painting for supporters of the A* Patreon page done; I've been trying to get to it during the past few weeks but that has not met with much success (including me just really having trouble with a drawing! ; P).
So maybe that'll happen, or maybe it won't, because I've already wasted far too much weekend time here trying to find a suitable replacement for my phone's clock/weather app, which I've found is constantly overestimating the temperature, and making me double back to get a hat when I go out! : P One difficulty I'm running into is that while there are some nice-looking apps for this, many of them, even though they let you switch to the US-style 12-hour clock, don't have an AM/PM indicator to go with it, I suppose because most people in the world—outside United States, anyway—aren't used to needing such crutches—but I'll be darned if I'm going to learn to subtract 12 from an hour just to figure the evening time at my advanced old age. Hmph! : P
