Aside from horsing around in my visual journal, I've been going outside the second it gets dark and looking for my friend Orion in the night sky. If you're in LA, you can see him pretty high in the western sky shortly after dark. The 3 most perfectly lined up stars in the sky. He dips down lower and lower in the sky as the night goes on.
I've also been on the lookout for Saturn which is not so easy for me to
locate. But if I could find it, and had a telescope say, and could
really really get all up in Saturn's business (which I'd like to do) I
could see that its rings are tilted 3 degrees in our direction. WHAT?!
I love thinking about the earth tilting on its axis. How the sun moved
north across the celestial equator last Sunday. How fast our little
planet is moving through space. How the universe keeps expanding. Those ginormous rings of Saturn. Big
thoughts in my little head.
