If you're out in the country, cows think it's twilight and start running for the barn.

But it's not like twilight, more like a gray filter. The colors don't change.

Forgot!

(Thanks, freebeard.)


I almost posted a Happy Perihelion message, though.


It's been poor solar observing conditions lately: this morning was the first time I've seen the shiny orb rise free of clouds in about 2 weeks. Unusually grey skies around here so far this winter.


I just read there's a comet in our neighbourhood though... I'll have to aim the new-to-me telescope at it.

On a voyage through the inner Solar System comet 2022 E3 will be at perihelion, its closest to the Sun, in the new year on January 12 and at perigee, its closest to our fair planet, on Feb. 1.


[...]


if we’re lucky the comet will be visible to the naked eye. It will look like a white smudge in the sky north of the Little Dipper, he said.

Maybe I'll remember to look for it with my camera!
