I pulled out 6A Wry reply to “How’d you do that?”: MAGIC because it’s a thing I say to Calah all the time. Or I say that I’ve got the magic touch. The difference is that that frequently is the case. At her mother’s wedding Sunday night I pulled my keys, sunglasses, and wallet out of the cloth napkin that had been on the table. Magic!
17A *Miniaturized reference: POCKETATLAS.
60A *Iconic photograph taken by Voyager 1 at the request of Carl Sagan: PALEBLUEDOT. Really, I didn’t expect to be as awed by the photo as I am.
And then there’s a new one!
23D *Facility where things are always looking up?: PLANETARIUM, a word I have difficulty reading with the T pronounced.
11D *Computer program that blurs out military installations: GOOGLEEARTH.
32A With 39- and 44-Across, promise that Aladdin sings to Jasmine (and a hint to the answers to the starred clues): ICANSHOW YOU THEWORLD.
Finished this one in 10:25, mostly on my phone.
