Night Sky~

Its very quiet here. Actually--its a peace I can't describe, and a slight loneliness. But I have the stars and planets this late night! along with the thick summer air that snuffs out sleep. More times than not I'm found on the back patio looking out over the night sky around 2am. I've been tracking Jupiter and Venus for well over a month now. Both are coming close to one another-dipping in the night sky lower each night.
 It fascinates me. Other times they keep me company when all is still, and asleep. I suppose I'll miss them when their gone. But August will bring shooting stars! And the show will go on...


and I'll be watching~

  3. I enjoy watching the night skies. John Denver apparently said that he was inspired to write the song "Rocky Mountain High" because of shooting stars. He was high in the mountains on a quiet, no wind...silent winter night. He would watch and listen to the shooting stars. Yes, he could hear them streak across the sky...and this he felt a high of the senses from the excitement of the experience. :)
