Due to inclement weather, I think it is safe to say my stargazing is officially on hiatus for the next several days.  Storms and rain and even snow are ahead.  The forecast shows a break in the clouds throughout the weekend, so it’ll be anyone’s guess how generous the skies look in three-to-four days.

This is a bummer, as I always enjoy watching the Moon’s very thin waxing crescent emerge in the West, night after night.

Here’s hoping that wherever you are on the planet, your gateway to the cosmos is unimpeded.
