Psst! Hey, you! Yes you, reading this blog post. Is it still January 21? Is it dark out? Is it clear enough to see the moon?
Well than what are you doing??? Go outside! Look up! Didn’t you read my January Urban Observing post? The Moon and Jupiter have their closest conjunction all year (or the next 13 years) tonight and it’s #&*! snowing here! I suppose that’s what I get for living in SE Michigan, but you said it was clear where you are, so get out there!
Oh, you already saw it? Sorry. You can stay here, where it’s warm. Unless of course you’d like to take some pictures and share them, maybe… please? 😀
