hile waiting for the pizza to show, I broke out the Bushnell x35 and went out into the backyard. The sun was just down and to the west, I could clearly see Venus glimmering (fitting, on Valentine’s Day). Looked at it for quite a while.
Behind me, Jupiter was coming up. Of course, not seeing it through the planetarium scope (using my peeper) I could only see it as a bright spot, but still.
Right now, I’m like someone who’s moved into a foreign city. I don’t know anything. And nearly always lost. But when I leave my apartment, there are one or two spots that I recognize, that I cling to. These are my fixtures, Jupiter and Venus.
Let’s see if I can’t get out a little more in the coming weeks…
