Morning This Week

How I See It

Up before the Sun. It rises later now.

Venus passed the Earth and is now bright in the morning sky. Welcome back.

One more thing…

NASA posted this as their Image of the Day for 8 Sep 2015. It shows the silhouette of the International Space Station passing in front of the Sun as viewed by Bill Ingalls. He was in Shenandoah National Park, Front Royal, VA on 6 Sep 2015 to capture it. On board were 9 astronauts traveling 5 miles per second.

      My pleasure. Also, there will be further opportunities for loveliness. One in particular is a total lunar eclipse Sept. 27. I will write about that soon.
