Canton is the fellow who updates your astronomy calendar (full moons, equinoxes, etc.) from his laptop in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It’s his birthday today! The astronomy calendar is an effort of love and no reciprocity is needed or expected, but if you’d like to say thank you for his efforts, then please visit: http://cantonbecker.com/astronomy-calendar/credits.html
