The length of our day is now three minutes longer than it was on last Monday's solstice.

Do I have to be productive during the extra minutes? I don't want to.

Here is my pitiful picture of The Great Conjunction of 2020.  The planets were setting way too low in the west to use my scope on them, but at least you can see bright Jupiter on the left and dimmer Saturn on the right.

Oh, I'm so happy that you liked the picture, Annie.  I was clouded in too and have to confess that the photo was taken one day late, but still, the planets were pretty close to each other.  Almost everything on the western horizon is closed off to me, due to big houses across the street and even bigger trees.  But I had a brief opening so I took advantage of it.  Jupiter and Saturn will be close to each other in 2040 and 2060, but not as close as they were this December.  We will have to wait until 2080 for them to get really close again.  I can't wait.

I am not certain I will be around to admire the next photo though...perhaps I could take a job as your assistant?  :)
