Well, who wouldn't want to see that kind of celestial conjunction? So I prepped the camera and found the tripod and planned for an evening of "conjunctivitis". Somewhere between receiving the early morning email and that evening I forgot the plan. I asked the current Mrs. Blythe if she would like to join me in partaking of Rib City in St. Pete and she said yes. So off we went, oblivious to the magic that was happening above, until i got out of the car and saw what I was missing. This is what I was missing:
I scabbed this picture off the internet. It is not mine. I wish it was. Credit goes to a Mr. Andrew Symes who had the good fortune to remember his plan and not be drawn to the best rib joint int he Tampa bay Area.
OK, so I missed all the galaxial fireworks of the 20th. Would I be able to remember the 21st and take appropriate action? Why, yes, than you very much.
As usual, keep looking upward. We now resume our normal programming.
