Delayed Pleasure

image by Rick Stankiewicz, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada

Clouds made me miss the conjunction of Venus and the Earthlit Moon 12 evenings ago. But with Rick’s pastoral image I can vicariously enjoy one of the most beautiful and restful views of the Moon. Of all the terrestrial planets, Earth provides the best nightime sky shows; I’m glad I live here.
