"Carpe noctem" -- Latin for "seize the night." For astronomers, success depends on making the most of the night. The rest of us in academia, through choice or procrastination, also endeavor to squeeze every last ounce of productivity from the midnight hours. Sooo... since we were up late anyway, we had this phrase hand-stamped on a 1" brushed nickel pendant. (Note: for hand-stamped items, the exact placement and look of the lettering may vary slightly.) The piece is domed, with a soft matte finish, and hangs on your choice of an adjustable black cotton cord or a steel snake chain.
