Rant: My favorite star is now nearly impossible to see, due to fading eyesight from age*, and my glasses are 3 years old already. In addition, it's still too damn low in the sky to see clearly at midnight, and I don't like venturing out after 12:30 am. Especially on weekdays. And I don't feel like waiting another damned month for it to be high enough at midnight. Frakkin' Earth orbit. * = But being visually +4.85 magnitude, it can be seen in my area with 20/20 vision. Away from my town's main highways and commercial districts, of course. Naked eye limit is about +6.
