Just a Phase (Pun Intended)
We are obsessed with all things nighttime and celestial right now, so here's the latest. While getting the mail tonight, I happened to look up at the tiny crescent moon and noticed two gorgeously bold planets shining brightly right next to it in the clear and crisp night air. Of course I called C.S. right away and suggested he go outside immediately and take a look. He has long ago given up trying to argue with me when I make these kinds of bizarre requests. His trust was well-rewarded with a view of the moon, Venus, and Jupiter making a "frowny face" in the night sky. Come to find out they only sail that close to each other once every 44 years. I'm so glad we looked!
