Some ill-positioned clouds prevented me from seeing the maximum conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn Monday evening, but perhaps it will be clearer tonight. The planets won't appear to be quite as close together, but my eyesight is now so bad that they might still blur together into one light anyway. This morning there is actually quite a bit of fog out there, but that's supposed to burn off later this morning. For the moment, the fog is so appealing that I'd be tempted to go out walking in it, if there was anywhere to walk to around here, and if I felt like getting out of my comfy house clothes into something suitable for outdoors. I don't, of course.
But at least I can step out into the backyard and smell the fog. I've always liked the smell of fog. Once the traffic on the freeway picks up it won't smell so good though. But I should be back to sleep by then. It's starting to turn a bit grey out already. The nights will be getting shorter now. Sunrise at 7:25 today. Goodnight, night.
