Jupiter, Saturn, Clouds

Jupiter and Saturn in the sky, about to be swallowed by the cloud cover.

Since many of you who frequent this site are complete nerds, you’re probably aware that in tonight’s sky Jupiter and Saturn are within a tenth of a degree of each other, which is their closest conjunction in eight centuries. And because I’m the sort of nerd I am, I was hoping to see that. For much of the day the sky conspired against me — rain and complete cloud cover. At sunset, however, the sky cleared up juuuuuust enough that Jupiter and Saturn were briefly visible. Here’s a shot of the two of them just before the were once again completely concealed by clouds. Thank you, sky, for cooperating if only briefly. It’s nice to see astronomical history with one’s own eyes.

For No Reason Whatsoever, Here’s One of My Favorite Songs From a Couple of Years Ago

It’s “Don’t Go Away” by The Summer Kills. Their entire album, Last Night We Became Swans, is worth seeking out.

On another subject entirely, come back tomorrow (12/22) around 2pm Eastern for an announcement.
