That's no moon, that's my... companion

The astronomers who in July announced the discovery of a "10th planet" in our Solar System say the object has a moon.

Currently, the planet has been dubbed Xena; the moon will be called Gabrielle until official names are agreed.

Both "codenames" come from characters in a US TV series, Xena: Warrior Princess.

"Since the day we discovered Xena, the big question has been whether or not it has a moon," Professor Brown said in a statement. "Having a moon is just inherently cool - and it is something that most self-respecting planets have, so it is good to see that this one does, too."

Planets having self-respect is always a good sign. *nods*

I have been wanting to say this for a while...
you are... simply delightful. I love your posts!

I would come to game night but I do believe they are on tuesdays and I have class that night until nine. Then again that may not be too much of an excuse. We shall see.

Delight!

They're Thursdays, sis. Great group, too, though I'm an RPG snob so I don't go much.
