Then the clouds parted: Blue Moon Horizon…

Last night was a pretty special night sky when you can see the Full Moon right after twilight in the East, then pirouette west and see Jupiter and Venus, evening star and its stunt double sucking face at about the same thirty degrees above the horizon, getting all star-struck with rumors of Bethlehem and other buzz-food swirling about the star-crossed lovers so close so far only some half-billion miles between them on a good night Venus always close to the sun from our perspective Jupiter free to roam far and wide in its twelve (Earth) year orbit around the sun, so only catches up with Venus (from our perspective) as catch can, even better is that July will have another Full Moon before the month is over, Blue Moon, way cool, as long as the clouds will allow it…
