Why do you capitalise "Sun". but not "moon"? Why can't you seem to decide whether or not to capitalise compass points? (You have examples of "Northern" and "northerly", both in the middle of sentences...)

Pedantically yours,

Where? Not in my copy!!! All my sun's have a small letter as do northern and northerly. What are you talking about?
