The World Mourns and Stands With You, UK, June 3, 2017, Part 2

This begins astrologer John Davenport‘s part of the article. I have done minor edits for cohesiveness while retaining the precise meaning John has intended.

Happy Birthday, Clyde Tombaugh’s (No, Not Disney’s) Pluto!

I’m not one to stand all the time on ceremony, so why should I start now? A mere two weeks after Clyde Tombaugh’s 24th birthday, he made an incredible discovery. Of course Mike Brown of the International Astronomical Union (IAU)–a member of the International Council for Science (ICSU)– disagrees that Pluto is worthy of recognition.
