Starry Night

If you are up around 4 or 5 AM, be sure to look east. Venus is blazingly bright and large right now and reaches it's zenith tomorrow morning.

I saw it the other morning and thought it was an incoming plane, until I realized that it wasn't moving. If the stars are about the size of a pinhead, this light in the sky is the size of a pencil eraser. The brightness is like an oncoming car's halogen headlight. Really beautiful.

If I wasn't so blind in a fog this morning, between 4 and 6 AM, then I probably would have noticed. Were you up in search on Venus this morning ? (LOL).
