Moon and Venus
The Moon and Venus as seen from my balcony. 2/27/09
It was splendid to see. The crescent Moon also showed the rest of itself, lit by light reflecting from Earth. My thanks to Toms Astronomy Blog or I would have forgotton to go out on my balcony and look.
Speaking of the balcony, the tree trimmers came, and gave the trees, a GI haircut.
Just A Trim, Please
It's a year of cutbacks.
What A View
The trimmed tree sure opens up the sky.
I was trying to describe my new setup with the Macbook and HDTV monitor, and thought; "Maybe a couple of pictures will help".

I went out to the store for food last night, while the moon and Venus were so wonderfully prominent in the western sky.
At the register, I was talking about the Moon and Venus display to the nice lady who was checking me out, when a woman came up and said;"What?, Did You say, Venus?, My name is Venus, and we have been driving I-5, for hours, using the moon and that star as our guiding light."
I said; "That is Venus."
The check out lady said, to the woman traveler; "You see, you were your own guiding light."
