Three points will form a triangle you say? Not quite excited enough to set the alarm for that one.

Done in one.

That's about when bars let out, so I'll see two triangles.

Heh, done in one. It's not even an equilateral triangle.
 
2013-01-05 04:34:55 PM  
It has begun.

Here's a guy who might be excited at this news: Link

This just in: Astronomers confirm that three points do, indeed, form a triangle. Film at 11.

How can you be so obtuse? Is it deliberate?
 
2013-01-05 04:42:19 PM  
You know who else "formed" triangles?
 
2013-01-05 04:43:10 PM  
Not quite what it would take for me to grab my telescope and freeze my ass off at 3AM.
 
2013-01-05 04:43:16 PM  
Let me know when they DON"T make a triangle. Now that would be impressive.

That's acute example of word play.

A line segment is impressive to you?

Meh. I'm waiting for the Moon, Saturn, Uranus, and Hale-Bopp comet rhombus.

This guy is my ride to the up close viewing...

God looks like Voldemort? Good to know.

I'm a Virgo and I told my wife that later tonight Uranus will form a triangle with my balls.
She laughed.

You can do this with the moon, Saturn, and any star. And conspiracy fantasists 'scientists' don't know why!!!!1111eleventyone

Uhm.... Subby, 3 non co-linear points is a triangle. I'm not sure how the geometry is special. Saturn is kinda cool. Large, gassy, has stripes... kinda like an internet user.

In other news wish I wasn't sick as a dog or I'd hike my butt up the mountain to get a real nice view of the night sky... Wait, no I wouldn't its well below freezing up there. Fark that!

/Can I launch a probe like NASA?

I bet if you threw in another planet or star you'd get a cosmic... quadrangle Maybe even a cosmic parallelogram!

It will be snowing out. I suppose I could check out some snow at 3 am, but I'll probably just wait until later.
 
2013-01-05 05:51:02 PM  
Boring ! Let me know when I can see Uranus.......

Rufus Lee King: All kinds of things are going on out there, folks...


Somewhere, in another galaxy, far far away, there's a conjunction of a planet, a satellite, and a star.

I'm not really up on my astrology - will this make it easier or harder for me to get laid?

Collinear is just a special case of triangular.

Here's the stunning prediction of what this remarkable occurrence will look like. I am breathless with anticipation

What a coincidence. I'm reading this at 2:59 Sunday Morning. Too bad I'm naked and can't be bothered to put any clothes on.
