January, or was it February, star trails

The amateur astronomers are playing with their light-sabers again!

Shooting stars and stuff

2312

Yesterday there was so much fog in the city, that we hoped it would throttle the light pollution during our observations. When you hope for the best, sometimes, you get the best.

Clear sky, -9 C degrees and couple of telescopes. What else can we ask for?

Advice To A Son

Never trust a white man,
Never kill a Jew,
Never sign a contract,
Never rent a pew.
Don’t enlist in armies;
Nor marry many wives;
Never write for magazines;
Never scratch your hives.
Always put paper on the seat,
Don’t believe in wars,
Keep yourself both clean and neat,
Never marry whores.
Never pay a blackmailer,
Never go to law,
Never trust a publisher,
Or you’ll sleep on straw.
All your friends will leave you
All your friends will die
So lead a clean and wholesome life
And join them in the sky.

~ Ernest Hemingway

Song of Autumn

Autumn mix
Autumn mix

Soon shall we plunge ‘neath winter’s icy pall;
farewell, bright fires of too-brief July!
even now I hear the knell funereal
of falling fire-logs in the court close by.

~ Charles Baudelaire’s Song of Autumn
