I wonder how the date 2018 August 3 is connected to the Lunar Eclipse images and description in the second panel of that calendar? :dunno:

At first, I thought the APOD team were simply practising a correct date format with the most significant element on the left (Year, Month Day) but, alas, no - soon after, in the description text, we are returned to stupid land and a mixed format, "Coming up on January 21, 2019" :doh:

I think the connection is that the images are from the APOD of 2018 August 3 which shows 3 stages of the 2018 July 27 total lunar eclipse. I agree that it is a bit misleading and confusing.

2019 January 3: Ultima and Thule

(Oddly, clicking on the image reflects it about a horizontal axis, at least for me. I have not seen this before.)

Similar to this image (middle of 3).

2019 January 4: Ultima Thule Rotation Gif

Also: Presently, the date at the top says "2019 January 3". I posted a message to hopefully make the powers that be aware of this (my first post).

There's just so much going on out in space currently, I think we might be needing an "Astronomy Picture of the Hour" before long... :lol:
