Monday night learnin'

Jumped into the York radio program. Half-watched the OPV. Learned of the Giovanni Demisiani and Council of Giants. Mr Demisiani is person who named the instrument we now call the telescope. Thank goodness we still don't call it the perspicillum! A tidbit for my Fun Facts presentation perhaps? Marshall McCall talked about the formation of galaxies and how the galaxies close to us seem to be aligned in a remarkably flat sheet. He shared a short YouTube video link to illustrate these giant structures. Flat, like a planetary system.
