Dear Companion readers,
Today, of course, is Election Day (U.S.) and we will be going to the polls to vote. For a degree of humor, here is an election-day palindrome: Rise to vote, sir.
This Friday, the 11th, brings Veterans Day (U.S.) and Remembrance Day (Canada), when we honor our vets.
And mark your calendar for the biggest Moon of our lives on November 14! Read more below—and join us for a free telescope show on Sunday, the 13th. Let's hope for clear skies!

To-day, alike are great and small,
The nameless and the known;
My palace is the people’s hall,
The ballot-box, my throne!
–John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–92)
