12/12/2021 Planetary Alignment.

Post by LadyTevar »

Tonight, the Moon is lined up with 5 planets and 2 asteroids: Ceres, Uranus, the quarter Moon, Neptune, Pallas, Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus.

I went out to see it, and they're strung out across the sky in a long arc from East to West. Due to light pollution, I could only see the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn faintly, and Venus brightly. Of course when trying to take a video, the iPhone couldn't pick up Saturn at all.
Nitram, slightly high on cough syrup: Do you know you're beautiful?
Me: Nope, that's why I have you around to tell me.
Nitram: You -are- beautiful. Anyone tries to tell you otherwise kill them.
