Zubenelgenubi is now the Ken Carr star

We had the Sharing The Sky Foundation on today's Morning Blend.  They were kind enough to bring me a certificate that renames the star Zebenelgenubi as the Ken Carr Star.

Stars in the astronomy community are not named after people (although asteroids are).  So, on a technical level, it's an honorary thing instead of official.  But I'm willing to overlook that!

I normally don't think I have a celestial body when I look in the mirror.  Having a star renamed after me may cause me to rethink that.

The next time you gaze at the sky look for my star.  Feel free to wish on it!

Zubenelgenubi is now known as the Ken Carr Star
Twinkle twinkle little Ken Carr star, how I wonder what you are...
