As always Bob, thanks for your knowledge and enthusiasm! I'm really looking forward to watching Venus' southerly trek across the sky. The sun will begin its southerly journey later this week as well and i love Judy simply 'noticing'! I think author Henry Beston described it all beautifully:
"The sun, descending the altar of the year, pauses ritually on the steps of the summer months, the disk of flame overflowing"
"The great sun overflows, the year burns on..."
“We lose a great deal, I think, when we lose this sense and feeling for the sun. When all has been said, the adventure of the sun is the great natural drama by which we live, and not to have joy in it and awe of it, not to share in it, is to close a dull door on natures's sustaining and poetic spirit.”
― Henry Beston, The Outermost House: A Year of Life On The Great Beach of Cape Cod
Found an error in the article about Venus that you might want to correct!
"It was have adventures that will be fun to watch."
I look forward to watching Venus over the next few nights. Thanks!
