3 Things

Today is the first day of Autumn.  And we were going to do a DIT (Daily Interesting Thing) about autumn and leaves and ...

But, 2 other things popped up for big competition to such a topic for today.

So if it is ok with you, let’s ‘do’ autumn news tomorrow or sometime soon.

So what are these other two things you ask?

Well first is a big time update to the Baby Christopher update of yesterday.

We thought that he was doing really well so posted that update.  But, just today, we learned that things are even better!

So, to find out how much better Baby Christopher is doing, HERE’S THE LINK

And the other thing is news about Planet Jupiter.

Jupiter?  Yes.

We got a call from a friend last night asking about the realllllly bright object in the sky that she and her husband had seen while walking the dog last night.

Alas, they hadn’t heard!

It is Jupiter!   And you can still see it.  It is not just a one night event.

Here’s the deal.  Seems that every so many years, Jupiter gets close enough to earth that it looks very bright in the sky.  This is one of those times.

So, if you are ‘into’ observing beautiful things in the sky, this is one of those times when you should take a look.

Jupiter will not be as close to the earth as it is now until 2022.
