Allusive Green

Using apps that showed me where the Green Comet should have been, I photographed the night sky in hopes of getting some sort of sighting. Between the 94% full moon and general light pollution, the Greeny is too faint to see. I’ll try again on the 10th when Greeny will be close to Mars and the moon with come up late.

Birds & Stars


An attempt to photograph the Green Comet. It was near Polaris last night.


Moon and Mars


Jupiter and moons


Eastern sky. Mars to the left of the moon in the moon’s glow.

A second Jack

Kitties Conflate

Loki and Gwendolyn

Kitties conflated
Tangled mess of tails and toes
Two cats into one

When a half-moon blurs
Becomes a ball, a cold sun
Sits eternal blue

From time’s space, she saw
Vibrant sky wore lacy trees
Venus winked, skies blushed

Ripples & Folds

Jupiter tows Moon across the sky
Rippling the fabric of space and time
Jupiter lost in a fold

Mars hangs above Resa’s tree
Kiss Flying-V points to two
The Pleiades questions tenebrous
Capella looks at ten
Uranus sits dimly on one

At The Beach

Not a cloud in the sky

Cranes playing on the beach on the other side of the river.

Jake intermission

Downy Woodpecker
