pointed out typo to York U

Spotted a typographical error on the York University Observatory web site. Pointed it out to Paul.

He said he had to read it several times before he saw the spelling mistake... Do people not see typos?

I remember an experiment, back in grade 8, where we were asked to count the spelling mistakes in a paragraph on a business card-sized piece of paper. It took us a few read-throughs to see all the errors. Is our brain tricking us? Is my brain weird?
