It's past my bedtime. I was about to curl up in bed and read some more of Packing for Mars, but I decided to let Elvis out, and when I stepped outside I actually gasped when I saw how bright Jupiter was. My camera really can't do it justice, but I just had to share a picture.
Needless to say, the really bright object in the top right is the moon. Jupiter is near the bottom left. It's a lot more amazing in real life.
If you get a chance during the next few days, I recommend that you go outside at night and watch the sky.
(I'd nearly forgotten about the song I linked to above until I wrote that sentence. I just fell in love with it all over again.)
