I found a new place for Tai Chi, my teacher has classes locally at another location :)

now I just have to find a new Zumba class, my instructor is preggers and taking the summer off (I can't imagine why LOL)

yesterday was exhausting. Lots of questions I could not answer and second guessing. Must upload photos later.

and tomorrow am :
It's worth getting up very early on June 6. Looking east in the predawn darkness, find the crescent Moon with the bright planet Jupiter hovering to its lower right.

For an extra treat, use binoculars to view the same scene, and you'll easily see the dim planet Uranus just above and very near Jupiter. You'll be in select company; few people have ever seen Uranus!




that's a reason to get up a little early in the morning :) Pegasus is going to be visible, too, for an extra added bonus. I've never seen Uranus, it should be visible with binoculars according to some sites. We'll set up the telescope just in case (unless it rains.. boo hiss)

Let’s hope it is a clear evening on the 15th - if so you can see one of the great celestial sights as Venus and a crescent moon are nestled together right between the tips of the horns of Taurus the Bull. How good is that?



..and we're due for clear weather this weekend... YAY!

in the Inuit tradition, Procyon is 'Name of a Murdered Man' and Aldebaran is 'Spirit of the Polar Bear'.

Yes there's a star out there called Betelgeuse (Beetlejuice).

& a little astronomy humor
