    OT: Speaking of Heavenly Bodies !

    Venus, Jupiter, and the moon are putting on a nice show tonight and tomorrow.


    This evening (Nov.30)




    And a little later




    Tomorrow night, the Moon will be above and just left of the Venus/Jupiter pair in almost a perfect equilateral triangle.

    Great post and nice pics. I saw those bodies riding home from work - the little pink clouds added a nice touch.

    Saw that on my ride home. It's like the moon is looking at the planets.
    Sweet.

    A few from Boulder

    I will admit that it was just dumb blind luck that I headed for Chautauqua to look for the moon and planets. It worked out, though.

    I was a little early. The preview wasn't half-bad.

    Oh, and it was adequate in the opposite direction, too.

    Now we've got the first planet.....

    Ah, and the show begins.

    The clouds made it especially interesting.

    Given your recent sardonic and cynical posts you were probably looking for something like this.

    How's your nancy-boy project coming along? Have you picked a color yet, fuscia, cerise, fandango? And what about the accent color?

    I have so many nancy-boy bikes it's not even funny. I just had one painted pearl white with the most dreamy shade of cobalt blue you ever saw!
