Jupiter on one flank, Aldeberan on the other. I stood there rooted in the cold, looking up at it. The silent and implacable beauty had me. Go have a look, if you're able, and if you can see it where you are. It is really something.

I don't have a camera to do the sight justice. But I dug up some pics

Always the dance continues, and our view of it is glorious. But we are mere spectators. We get to watch, but we also have to make sure we don't get stepped on.

What would it be like to be dancers?
or choreographers?
Whoa.
There's a thought.

Make sure to bundle up.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
