Who’s Canton? He is the fellow who updates your astronomy calendar (full moons, equinoxes, meteor showers, etc.) from his laptop in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It’s his birthday today!
This astronomy calendar is an effort of love and no reciprocity is needed or expected. If you’d like to donate something towards the hosting costs, or just say thank you for the calendar (or report an error!) please visit:
PS: Also, this is a great day to see Mercury low in the western sky just after sunset.
