Living above the 45th parallel as we do gives a sun which slides a considerable distance this way or that in its rising. It has slipped quite a way south and has another 50 days before it turns around. With the time change, I am leaving work just after sunset now, and can look forward to a month when I am strolling out to my car in the dark. Still, when the sky is clear enough, I'll be able to enjoy all the sunrises.
When I went out for the paper this morning, I noticed that I cast a slight shadow toward the streetlight. The full moon was right behind me and so bright! There were a few thin high clouds - mare's tails - and the stars were just brilliant. We don't often get such clear nights. I stood there in the cold with my hands tucked into my armpits, gazing at the moon for a good five minutes.
Now I'm running late. GED at the jail today. Wahoo!
