In my dreams

The excitement is high here at the Lewis Carroll Amphitheater, with the Mome Raths due to hit the stage any minute. The opening act were all mimsy, and this crowd is now ready to OUTGRABE.

I missed the first act because I was at the bar ordering Snicker Snacks.

Comet NEOWISE

NEOWISE from our back yard

NEOWISE is actually quite a credible naked-eye object, low in the North West. It helps to know where to look, and what to look for, but it is very definitely a bright nucleus with a tail fanning out. The most detail seen out of the corner of your eye.

As the month goes on, the comet will roughly follow in the Three Leaps of the Gazelle (asterism) which you can see leading to the upper left in the image above.

Seasonal Haiku

The Moon; Mars, Saturn and Jupiter were rather picturesque this morning at 5:15am while I was cleaning the hall floor of cat vomit.
