Comet Lovejoy![edit]

I do not usually give such notices to others, but I would recommend that all who can make some efforts to go out and SEEK and FIND Comet Lovejoy in coming days! It is a VERY fortuitous event, to be ABLE to see it NOW, and it should be visible to many for much of the rest of the month, especially if you have binoculars available, and as nights become darker as the moon wanes toward the new moon on the 20th; those of you in cities where lights obscure the sky might wish to go outside of them with binoculars around this time, if possible. There is a synchronicity of various EVENTS which have just recently occurred and are occurring even now, and which I expect to occur in coming days and months, not "caused" by that, and not "causing" it, in any physical ways at all, but which have generated MUCH Love and much JOY in my heart of hearts, and I can barely contain or stifle my joys much longer, and my faith and hope and charitable love of ALL! Absurdist Universalist Mystics and advocates of Humanist Unity within and beyond all sectarian or secular forms of faith are often prone to much sorrow at the ignorance and confusion of many people about many things, but that permits and impels them to take much joy in other things not discernble to most others, and SUCH are such things as ARE occurring NOW. So it goes Blessings. ~ Kalki·· 09:26, 10 January 2015 (UTC) + tweaks

Firefly ホタル 蛍 Hotaru.jpg
You're still shimmering and leading me on…

Firefly that's what you are
Burning for me in my darkest hour
"Light breaks where no sun shines"
So shine for me tonight — firefly.

Fireflies, stars, comets and meteors all provide illuminating events in their own peculiar ways, and have often fascinated me since childhood. Of course with the naked eye or even with binoculars Lovejoy won't look as impressive as in some of the many photographs available, nor be as bright as some other comets which have been around in recent years, but still it is relatively easy to locate and see with binoculars. These are two of the better articles I have found on locating it and viewing it in the coming days:

Larger files from the White House[edit]

Hello, where did you take the larger version of the File:Harper Lee Medal.jpg from? Iˆˆ’d like to upload more images from the event and I do not see larger versions. Thanks and regards, Gumruch (talk) 17:29, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

I found it doing a "Google Image" search by image, using upload address of the the previously available image as the base of the search. Unfortunately, though there seem to be other images from the event available, I have not located any which were indisputably public domain, so I haven't uploaded any others as yet. ~ Kalki·· 18:58, 20 February 2016 (UTC) + tweaks

Harper Lee[edit]

Sorry about that. My browser kept displaying the old version with the new version's dimensions for some reason. Connormah (talk | contribs) 23:51, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

That often happens after an image is updated, until the various servers, or user's browsers which have been previously used to view the images, are sufficiently updated, and I recognized that may have been what occurred. The phenomena puzzled me in some of my early attempts at updating. ~ Kalki·· 06:02, 22 February 2016 (UTC) + tweaks
