Walking Toward Jupiter

Jupiter risingWalking Toward Jupiter

Familiar friend, well met
unmistakable ecliptic companion
dazzling colossus
keeping company nightly
not to be lightly missed

    I didn’t want to think about your not being able to see Jupiter!

    Gosh, this is a great resource. In my own city and I wasn’t even aware. Even though I used to spend some time at the Observatory when I first landed here. Thanks, Monica. 🙂

    I like that, Laz – especially from you! Thanks!

    Thank you, Ian, and happy celestial viewing to you!

    I miss it when I don’t! Here’s a link to your star/planet chart:

    Looks like you can see Mars and Venus now but not Jupiter. Once I saw Jupiter and Venus stuck together like butterfly wings. Talk about other-worldly!

    “dazzling colossus” – it must be marvellous to see.

  7. I like that short tribute to our celestial companion Monica, nicely worded.
    Regards
    Ian
