Supermoon, Sunrise, Meteor Shower


Serendipitously caught Supermoon this past weekend, sunrise this morning, and am now enjoying the Perseid meteor shower in the backyard.  If I don’t have to get up in four hours to get ready for work, I’d brew myself a pot of loose leaf Alishan oolong tea, and just hang out in the backyard until 3am.  Apparently that is when the meteor shower is the brightest.

I am not a big sky buff.  In fact, I am probably the least qualified person you know to show you where Orion is, let alone Perseid constellation.    But more and more, I am drawn upward.  Just look up at the sky!  Our sky offers us a glimpse into the wonders of our universe.

My puppy runs around in the yard, sniffing in the cool night air, wondering why we are out so late.  “Oh there’s one!”  I pointed out another comet detritus that just slammed into our planet to the pup.  She looked up and wagged her tail.  Love.  Mother Earth.  Peace.  Brilliant.  Heavenly.
