Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
We've had bad weather for two months. But the sky cleared tonight, and I live in a dark sky zone. At 4.58 the brilliant ISS passed over at sixty degrees, from south-west to east. It passed by sparkling Jupiter, next to dimmer Saturn, then headed close by the gibbous moon with Mars, definitely not to be outdone, Mars being straight above the moon and very close to it. A conjunction, I should say. Then off to the east, via the rising Orion. Castor and Pollux are there too, my sign. If the world looks dim and murky and depressing, you can always look up. The firmament don't care. I'm a member of the Cloud Appreciation Society too, member no 2468, great when the stars have gone in. Join us!
