LOOK TO THE STARS: In K.C., Matt Campbell reported the reason some viewers missed the end of CBS' telecast of Saturday's Kansas-Missouri game was likely something called the "equinox conjunction," which "happens when the sun, a satellite and a receiver on Earth line up just right." The experience is "so intense the receiver can't cope," and it "can last for five to 15 minutes before the alignment is broken." It is called the equinox conjunction because it "only affects satellites in orbit above the equator, and it occurs as the Earth approaches the equinox." That "means a couple of weeks in early March, when it can happen daily" (K.C. STAR, 3/8).
