Celestial navigation

First, it snowed on Mars - an event so majestic you can almost hear Jed Barlet wax poetic about it. Then scientists discovered a planet denser than lead. (Reports suggest they intend to name it Palin.) But it gets better: Tomorrow night an asteroid will streak across the sky and explode in a 1 kiloton blast! I don't know what that means but it sounds dangerous and cool.

Paris Hilton might say the stars are blind, but they've really never been more prescient. This is the kind of stuff that happens in Greek mythology before something awesome or awful happens. Needless to say I'm psyched.
