Exposure 0:56 to 1:06 UT (10 minutes). The field shown is about 6.5°x4.8°. Note the prominent disconnection event in the comet’s ion tail.

Answer:  UP AND ADD-‘EM

(Great pun!  Of course, the equations on the board were the BIG clue!  We have a brand new clue word today, in “carafe”.  Isn’t “farcea” one of the new prescription meds advertised on television?  It was the one jumble that I had to hesitate on, although I really liked “gelapu” too.  They were the only new jumbles.  Looks like our buddy, ralis95, has another word to add to his clue word database!  The answer letter layout was a dandy.  I liked the way all the consonants came first, then all the vowels.  I think that’s the way some of you write out the answer letters anyway.  Right?  The cartoon is just a little strange.  Poor little Billy looks dead, to me!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I have no idea why Zemanta gave me comet photos and these “Related Articles”, but WordPress is jumping around too much today for me to bother to try to refine the “Gallery”.  comets are cool though!      YUR
