..... have been spectacular!

Discussing dawn and dusk reminded me I saw Mercury for the 1st time this late summer. It was easily spotted between Venus and Jupiter at sunset earlier this year. Now I've seen all the planets visible to the naked eye. (Tho' I was also using binoculars and a telescope)

What will fall and winter hold for us?

Oh that's right.... we know where things will be when.... Ahhhhh...science and math.....
