Heavenly bodies

Spent about an hour last night watching the planetary conjunction....turns out that it's higher in the horizon than I'd been lead to believe. At about 8:15, way out in west Lancaster (just north of 90th West and Ave I, in case you were curious), pretty much the only things visible in the western sky were Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Saturn, and Mercury. It was a warm night, with a strong, cool breeze, and it was just about as close to heaven as I've been in quite some time. Made me wish I had someone to share it with, but, as always, I'm workin' on that ;).
