You can barely see on the top of Wing Hall in my picture here (sorry was caught without my telephoto) – but a D has been hanging out here the past few days. This pic was at 1:15 pm, but I saw it there around 4 pm yesterday, too!

When I was a freshman at Cornell in 1986, I took two semesters in Astronomy. Like many freshmen, I had poor time management skills and would often end up pulling all-nighters to get assignments completed. I arrived at one particular astronomy lecture having had maybe one or two hours of sleep in two days. It turns out that this was one of those days that the professor lectured primarily from slides. Dark room. Warm lecture hall. You can guess what happened! I woke up at one point and the professor was saying something like, "...and Neptune looks like a GREEN PING PONG BALL!" I went back to sleep.
