    Howdy guys,

    Some of you know that I am really into astronomy and I was looking to find astronomy themed tobacco blends. So far I have:

    Starlit Night (McLelland/P&C)
    GL Pease Quiet Nights
    Constellation (C&D)

    I have heard good things about Quiet Nights. Looking for a good tobacco to smoke while waiting for the sun to go down while I browse my star charts for my observing session. And a blend to keep me awake!!!

    Dont forget about "Navigator" and "Sextant". Most navigators and captains, back in the day, navigated by stars and these were named as such.

    ETA: my youngest son (of 4 boys) is named Orion. I have a bit of love for astronomy myself

    This is the only one I know of Hearth & Home Marquee Series: Cerberus. Some info on the constelation, in case you aren't familiar with it(you probably already know of it): Cerberus, Constellation

    If you want to get technical, H&H Daybreak would qualify - after all, the sun is a star... And it's one you could smoke on the other end of a stargazing session, as the sky gets lighter and you're packing your equipment back into your vehicle. I'll have to make sure I've got some on hand for next year's Winter Solstice observation.

    An industry insider factoid: McClelland names, or numbers, some of their bulk aromatic blends after various galaxies and star clusters. For example M-27 Three Cherry Blend is named after the Dumbell Nebula, M-58 Apricot Brandy is the Barred Spiral galaxy, etc.

    CACooper:

    Now how cool is that?!? Would love to know more

    BTW, I was at our local TinderBox and saw a tin of Dark Star. Another good name of something I want to try.

    There are lots of good names from astronomy to be used for future blends.

    Earth: The Insane Asylum of the Universe. Nowhere else could things be more messed up.

    Does a culture based on separation and competition, of scientific sophistication and mideval religion, offer happiness even as it ravishes the Earth that sustains it?
