+ The smallest number that requires a dozen steps to reach a palindrome with the reverse-then-add process. [Caldwell]

+ The next planetary occultation of the star Zavijava (Beta Virginis) by Venus will take place on 11 August 2069. (Zavijava was used to confirm Einstein's general theory of relativity during the solar eclipse of 1922.)
