Look at you, Astronomer!

When we first moved aboard Rejoice, Anna asked if we did star viewing from the boat; I said I wanted to learn. She suggested that I sign up for the daily email from Earthsky.org, which has in the ensuing three years become one of my favorite things. Last week it noted that there would be a lovely nest of things happening before sunrise; a little last slip of moon before the new/no moon framed by Venus, Mercury, and Spica.

Like so much of your writing, this had such a wonderful “you are here” quality in which the rich details coupled with photos make it feel as if I am in the kayak with you. Thank you for allowing me to come along vicariously.
