Late season Jupiter with the kids


My kids, 5 and 3, could usually take or leave my hobby. Sometimes they just want to do what dad does and this was one of those nights. Perhaps it was all the recent rain and clouds we've had from Hurricane Ida but they we're ready to go. Conditions weren't the best, but some good views on the computer via the DMK and some eyepiece views got them pretty excited. That is until they got cold and didn't see any meteors from the shower. Ok, enough rambling. Here's my view that the kids helped capture!!

I think I'm the kind of person who doesn't like strong opinions.  It doesn't matter if I agree with your opinion or not, it's not factual, it never will be 100% factual and I don't care for it.  That's probably why I hate politics.

I've always loved facts, provable facts of nature and things concerning science.  

Over time, I found that most facts are mostly reference and it was the creation of and discovery of new things that intrigued me.

"A good friend once told me you are our memory
without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
