Bright moon rising
The moon is staying out later and later into the morning now. It is still pretty dark at 8 am and it is getting darker earlier too. Last night I saw the sunset at about 9:30. It is pretty nice for it to be dark when I go to bed. Much better than full sun shining in on me when I try to close my eyes. I also got to see something pretty amazing the last few mornings. Because the moon is so bright in the morning and the sky is dark I can see Venus and Jupiter (i think it's those two) around the moon. Two very bright stars that are actually planets! So very neat :) I like when the sun rises and set along the same horizon. It is exciting and odd to watch.
