    Some fun stuff going on in the night skies this month.

    Last night before bedtime I saw Sirius in the SE sky - very bright. This morning I saw Venus - very bright - in almost the exact same spot!

    And of course, everyone should be checking out the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn this month, in the evening, SW skies.

    That sounds better than a night with Venus & a lifetime with mercury.
    (Obscure joke.)
