Nearly every weekday morning, my buddy Thomas and I walk from the back porch to the end of the driveway. It’s close to a quarter mile so it is a nice way to wake up in the morning. Thomas has plenty of time to do what he has to do and as a benefit he gets to sniff out all the good smells that might be out there.
On Tuesday morning the sky was unusually clear. Most summer days are so humid that the sky has at least a haze about it. so there are not often many stars to be seen.
But Tuesday was very nice. I could see Casiopea, the constellation, Cyrus, The Swan and the Pleiades, The Seven Sisters. Even one “arm” of the Milky Way was visible in the morning sky.
