Not for the first time your publication confuses the term astrology with astronomy.

In your report "Proposals for town to become dark sky town" (Courant, March 11), you quote Wil Cheung as stating: "There is more interest in astrology than ever before."

If Wil is a serious astronomer, which I have absolutely no doubt he is, there is no way he would have used the word astrology.

I can only assume the error lies with you or your reporter.

For the avoidance of doubt, astronomy is based on scientific fact, whereas astrology is based on - well, I'm not quite sure, but it certainly isn't science.
