Three points will form a triangle you say? Not quite excited enough to set the alarm for that one.

That's about when bars let out, so I'll see two triangles.

Heh, done in one. It's not even an equilateral triangle.

This just in: Astronomers confirm that three points do, indeed, form a triangle. Film at 11.

How can you be so obtuse? Is it deliberate?

Let me know when they DON"T make a triangle. Now that would be impressive.

You can do this with the moon, Saturn, and any star. And conspiracy fantasists 'scientists' don't know why!!!!1111eleventyone

Uhm.... Subby, 3 non co-linear points is a triangle. I'm not sure how the geometry is special. Saturn is kinda cool. Large, gassy, has stripes... kinda like an internet user.

In other news wish I wasn't sick as a dog or I'd hike my butt up the mountain to get a real nice view of the night sky... Wait, no I wouldn't its well below freezing up there. Fark that!

I bet if you threw in another planet or star you'd get a cosmic... quadrangle Maybe even a cosmic parallelogram!

Somewhere, in another galaxy, far far away, there's a conjunction of a planet, a satellite, and a star.
