We had hoped to be back this week, but too many travels and the seasonal flu have us under the weather and so we will take another week off. We will be back on December 3. But in the meantime we hope to offer pictures of the planet, which is also under the weather. We trust that no captions will be needed, but of course we invite and encourage your comments.
