AN EQUINOX FANTASY
By Andrei Dorian Gheorghe
'Once a visitor asked me: <Here at the observatory can you see the Sun at night?>’
(Mihai Dascalu, the telescopist of the municipal astronomical observatory in Bucharest)
the Sun and Kepler-90 (from Draco),
each with eight planets,
to a televised galactic talk-show.
-Although we have
the same number of planets,
my mass, radius and temperature
are slightly higher than yours,
so I am the best.
But the Sun replied:
-I don't think so
as long as my people and I
can promote Pluto
back to normal planet status
whenever we want!
