Thanks. You have the advantage of actually having seen this part of the sky. I'm looking at planetarium software and mentally translating. The sky is seaish, computer screens are riverish.
FTFY
Except that's not what I wrote. I don't appreciate being misquoted, especially when the changes are awkward neologisms.
May all beings be happy, peaceful, and free.

It's hard to tell through all the bong smoke coming from wsr's direction, but it is just as likely wsr is having a go at me, for excessively nitpicking your comments. Either way, sorry about that Anthony.
