Night Sky

thanks to pixabay!  (No trees this tall on the farm, but we’ve seen that Milky Way.) 

Walk outside tonight and look up.  Lead with your AO-joint. That’s where the atlas (first vertebrae) meets the occiput (the bottom of the skull). If that gets tiring, lie down in semi-supine. I use a lounge chair for this.  Breathe. Point skyward.

Click on Night Sky, which will take you to the International Dark Sky Parks website.  Plan a trip to the Dark Sky Park nearest you.  Or, just walk out the back door. In winter, the stars are like miniature white lights draped among the highest tree branches.

Wishing for you ‘star-studded’ night sky viewing in these waning weeks of winter.
