However, John and I have discussed that fact that we can't see a "Man In The Moon." We think that people who say they see it are just lying. but according to Wikipedia (because we all know that everything on that website is honest truth...) There are several faces/pictures on the moon. Maybe we just don't have any imagination. That's not something I have ever been accused of before.
Along with the moon, we have been fascinated with the night sky in general. You may or may not know that Jupiter has been visible for the last month. It was following the moon along the sky for a while, but now it is catching up with the sun to disappear from sight again. Another reason why I'd love to have a telescope. Did you know that one of the belts of Jupiter has disappeared recently? You can go HERE to look at some pictures and read about it. I'd love to see that. Don't worry though, apparently it happens periodically, but it always comes back... or at least it has in the past.
It looks like coming up this October 20th the Heartly 2 comet will be coming close enough to earth to see with a telescope, binoculars, or in some places where it's dark you may actually be able to see it with only your eyes. It is not dark here. We'd have to go somewhere else to look. Why is it that all of the neat things I can see with my bare eyes happen in the middle of the work week so we can't go to the mountains to see them. Note to self: Save up time off. by the way, I adore Space.com it's where I find a lot of my information.
Okay, this is all for now, it's time to quite writing for the day. I'll pop by again some time soon.
And... by the way, isn't this a fantastic wedding cake?
Don't you just love the little groom on top that has his little cricket bat?
