Ophiucus, Scorpio, Libra, and the Half Bella Luna. Clear dark skies show the blinking lights of an airplane making its descent.
That is the vista through my southern window.
Bootes, Hercules, and a setting Ursa Major. Twinkling lights from a neighbor’s porch. Sister Pine and Brother Maple through the western rectangular oculus.
A truly mesmerizing late summer night in the simple yet profound beauty that surrounds us if we only take the time to look.
What sights are there behind those shut curtains and blinds? A whole world of glistening gems in the night sky.
Namaste. Good night, sweet dreams.
