(no subject)

Letting the tigers out this morning at dawn was rewarding. The moonlight flooded the back yard and the skies were mostly clear. Through the still bare trees i could see three planets lined up to the east, a line pointing towards the sun, still well below the horizon. Frogs sang in the distance. Marlowe was sleeping on a cushion set up by the screen (the porch is enclosed up to waist high -- something we'd like to change some day).

The sky map reveals it is Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars are clustered together (Pluto, not visible, in between Saturn and Jupiter), affirming my guess that it has been Venus performing as the Evening Star of late.
