Consider the Heavens

Get outside now. (If you're reading this in July 2014, don't bother). If the sky is clear, and you're in the Northern hemisphere, round about the Greenwich meridian - look south. Sirius, Orion's belt, Jupiter, Aldebaran and the Pleiades are all - very roughly - in a line. It's gorgeous. Go look. Nuff said.


  1. Blimmin typical, still cloudy; when it stops raining (does it ever stop?)the skies here are spectacular as there is no light pollution. It would be difficult to be an atheist and lie in our attic looking up at the stars.

  2. Looked outside.
    Thick cloud

  3. I looked - saw them! Wow... And it's nearly Epiphany. Think there's a sermon there ( not that I preach them any more, so perhaps a blog post). Thanks, Archdruid!
