Answers Posted for Recent WITU Challenges

Apologies for not posting the answers to the Where In the Universe Challenges numbers 116 and 117! Does forgetting things like this mean Iā€™m overly busy or just getting older? Anyway, you can find the answers back on the original posts: #116 was this image of a ghostly, mysterious galaxy with anomalous arms, and #117 was a beautiful image of a crescent planetary bodyā€” but the challenge was naming WHICH body!
