I read a story from the Associated Press about the Hubble Telescope. Astronomers have identified a second companion star to the Northern Star, Polaris.
The above photo is from the image galleries on the Hubble website.
Since I've been lax on posting verse, here is today's submission.
From Julius Caesar, Act III, Scene I
By William Shakespeare
I could well be moved, if I were as you;
If I could pay to move, prayers would move me:
But I am constant as the northern star,
Of whose true-fixt and resting quality
There is no fellow in the firmament.
The skies are painted with unnumber'd sparks,
They are all fire, and every one doth shine;
But there's but one in all doth hold his place:
So in the world, -'tis furnisht well with men,
And men are flesh and blood, and apprehensive,
Yet in the number I do know but one
That unassailable hold on his rank,
Unshaked of motion: and that I am he,
Let me a little show it . . .
