“Mars is bright tonight,” Firenze, (poa)20120228-094808.jpg
Has anyone else been able to see the planets aligned so beautifully in our night skies? Unfortunately I only had my phone to take a picture so you can’t see just how bright and clear they were. It’s always somewhat miraculous to see anything in the winter sky here so this was a special treat! I don’t know the winter sky a well as the summer because I took astronomy in the summer. All I really know is that you can finally see Orion. I love looking up to see that warrior watching over us on cold, crystal nights!
