This is all yer gonna git

I was hoping against hope that I would get a glimpse of the Saturn/Jupiter conjunction. Things didn’t look promising. It has been fugly cloudy and gray for daaaaayyyys. This afternoon Mr. Golden Sun peeked out from behind a cloud bank and then destroyed it!

In the end I *think* I saw the conjunction. I was in the driveway using SkyView on my iPhone to figger out where the planets were. I knew they were pretty low on the horizon and I probably couldn’t see them through the houses and trees in the neighborhood. So I walked over to the schoolyard and eventually got to a place where I could see it. Hello. There were other PEOPLE over there doing what I was doing so I had to do a bit of hopscotch because I was maskless. I had one in my pocket but getting the straps around my ears *inside* my balaclava was too much.

The pic is a screenshot from SkyView, an app I downloaded years ago to track objects in the sky. You may be using a different app. I’m sure there are a bajillion of them out there. No way was I gonna get a pic with my iPhone.

    I saw it too. Used my binoculars to make sure I was seeing the right thing. 😉

    Today is supposed to be the best day but it’s cloudy and rainy, so it’s probably not going to happen! John has that app on his phone too. We are both astronomy nerds.
