On terminal supports 24 bit color, has black background, and size at least 125x38, try:
It is said by some students of Astronomy:
Oh, Be A Fine Gal, Kiss Me!
Oh, Be A Fine Gentleman, Kiss Me!
Many Mnemonic variations exist. You might wish, on a star, to better understand the colors being displayed. And those in the deep south might wish to go north for a better view.

It was a starry night when my wife pointed her finger up and asked: “What is this star and may I have some Easter eggs?”
So I had to sit down and solve those tricky questions with Nano and a C compiler.
Basically, the program draws animated ASCII art of the Big Dipper using Annie Jump Cannon’s spectral classification system of stars and I think the colors of the output are as accurate as possible.
This program also tells once in a year if it is correct time to find and eat some Easter eggs.
The program has also at least three other functions, obvious and not so obvious.
This program has been tested on xterm and Konsole and also Linux virtual terminal. Color support in the terminal is not necessary, but the effect is better with it. This entry has partial support for terminals with a white background but the best viewing experience is achieved when the terminal in use supports 24-bit colors, has a black background and the size is at least 125x38.
Special note for Mac users: Terminal does not work as expected you might need xterm from XQuartz or some other working terminal. Thanks to Dave Burton for spotting this problem.
The main reason for the header
getdelim() but once I included it I also abused other functions and defines. This header is mutually exclusive with -std=c11.
The program was developed with little-endian machines; I tried to support big-endian too, but this support is somewhat limited.
This program has been compiled in
Please do not feed little babies chocolate.
I incorporated the Fletcher 16 checksum algorithm into the source for security reasons; it might be challenging to make changes without breaking the main functionality of the code.
The space after
#define p return is necessary.
The computus uses an algorithm described in the journal Nature in 1876. It should be valid for Gregorian calendars.
a are used in totally unrelated tasks.
end; instead of curly brackets.
They are used also in my code, but I had to shorten them to meet size requirements.
$, but then I rejected it.
If you think you understand how this program works, can you answer these questions:
aI_ after line 21?
Because the rot13 is too easy to decode with the plain eyes, I decided to use the Caesar cipher with the key 18.
