This post will not address life on the Concord River. Instead, I’ll use it to relate the action above the river–way, way, way above the river.
For the past few weeks Venus and Jupiter have performed a celestial dance on the Eastern horizon. Visible around five o’clock a.m., when the predawn sky is still asleep, the two planets are the spectacular winners of Mother Nature’s Dancing with the Stars.
By the 31st of October, they were in perfect alignment, called a conjunction.
Not one to be outdone, the moon has now entered the picture, wanting to sharing an intimate moment with Jupiter, which should happen tomorrow morning.
Holy cow, this has been an awesome ride. I can’t take credit for any of the photos. Mine look like I took pictures of specks of white dust on black paper (sigh). Santa, may I have a telescope for Christmas? One that my camera will fit? Call me and I’ll give you the specs. Thank you.
Blessed be :}
