Me and my Budget Grommet Swedish Meatballs wanna know: Is there an astronomer in the house?
I was out doing a little star-gazing again. It wasn't long enough for me to wax profound and philosophical and stuff, but I did see a planet, or what I'm pretty sure is a planet. It was 9:15 PM in Livermore here. The planet was on a 45° line down and to the right from the moon. It was really bright too. I wonder which one it is. It's getting to the time of year when I'll be able to lay out in the back yard and gaze again. Fortunately, this house has a reasonably nice backyard for it. There's only one large tree.
