received a query about the strange double star

I heard from RASC member Darren from Winnipeg.

He was commenting on my RASC Double Star observing program article in recent RASC Journal... "Great article, I really enjoyed it."

But he had questions about the double star in the example log sheet. He noticed a weird RA value and weird Dec value. He was curious the star catalogues I was referring to based on the noted designations. He couldn't seem to find the star!

I said he had a good eye. I was checking if people were paying attention. Then I let the cat out of the bag.

A complete fiction!


In deference to Van Halen and brown M&Ms...
