Of course we all know Wally's a black hole when it comes to food
Special Props to Nanook for coming up with that fabulous name, Corgadorian Gray! For those of you who don't know, Wally is part Corgi, part Labrador. Hence, he's a Corgador. Nanook, being clever and unimaginably literate, called him a Corgadorian Gray. NASA isn't as fabulous at names, as you can tell. Zwicky 18 may score high in scrabble, but it certainly doesn't flow flittingly from the tongue. Maybe they'll rename it 'Wallaxy 1'. And if Wally wants to be alone, he can build 'Battlestar Wallactica'. Can you grow Wallymellon with hydroponics?
For all you sky gazers, Here's a picture that will help you find Wallaxy 1. Click on it for a legible version. For you southern hemisphere dloggers, you're just out of luck. It's Wally's galaxy and he put it where he can see it. You'll have to come visit one of us up over types. For you astronomers, it's R.A. 09h 34m 1s.90 Dec. +55° 14' 26 ".00.
It's 4,000 or so light years across and 60 million light-years away, so don't expect to get back by dinner if you're planning a trip. Except, of course, if you're flying Aire Ruby or taking Stanley's magic bus. I'm sure they'll be leading tours soon, with plenty of snackies for the journey. Here's more quotes from the site that let us know this is truly Wally in the Skies with Diamonds:
"it is certainly developmentally challenged and unique in the nearby universe," said astronomer Alessandra Aloisi from the Space Telescope Science Institute and the European Space Agency in Baltimore, Md., who led the new study."
Haroo! 'Developmentally challenged!' 'Unique'...
"more distant than previously believed. ... this is still in our own backyard"
Distant... He wants to be aloooone... But always in the backyard
So there you have it. Wally is heavenly!
