Lyrids Pre Dawn Meteor Shower

Just before dawn on April 22, 2021, catch the Lyrids


The Lyrid meteor shower – April’s shooting stars – lasts from about April 16 to 25. About 10 to 15 meteors per hour can be expected around the shower’s peak, in a dark sky. This year, the best time to watch may be the hour or two between moonset and dawn. The Lyrids are known for uncommon surges that can sometimes bring the rate up to 100 per hour. Those rare outbursts are not easy to predict, but they’re one of the reasons the tantalizing Lyrids are worth checking out. The radiant for this shower is near the bright star Vega in the constellation Lyra (chart here), which rises in the northeast at about 10 p.m. on April evenings. In 2021, we expect the peak viewing to take place in the dark hour before dawn April 22, after moonset.

February’s Full Snow Moon

Look to the Sky early Saturday morning, February 27, 2021, 3:17 AM EST for the full Snow Moon

Aquarius season is in full effect, and with more than five planets simultaneously transiting through this sign, it’s safe to say the age of air has arrived. It’s a time of looking far ahead toward the future and has everything to do with progress.

For me this time will be about planning the garden.  Definitely start a few plants indoors, perhaps one of the more challenging plants followed by my garden staples like tomatoes.

As the thaw begins to soften the earth we’ll breaking ground for my little green house. Oh so looking to the future and progress!

When Venus came home

4B009824-16A4-4CEF-9D89-6402A7DD64F0

We met on a rainy evening in the NY shelter… at first, they couldn’t locate her, and I was afraid someone had already scooped her up.  She had been placed in the wrong kennel and when finally found an exhausted, frightened 11-week-old border collie mix was places in my arms. They called her Venus.

I tried to get her attention, looking into her in the eyes trying to get an idea of who she was but she just snuggled in and slept in my arms.  I sat there with the furry bundle for nearly an hour and when it came time for me to go the attendant asked if I was taking this puppy called ‘Venus”.

After very little pleading and a bit of preparation we sent our Molly back the following morning to collect the puppy. ‘Venus’ as she was called wasn’t very happy with the car ride was a bit timid and so afraid. We were nervous that maybe she was sick. But when the puppy arrived home, she suddenly transformed, playfully loping around the yard, it was like she knew it was hers. She knew she was home

…and so she, came home that day, the pup we would not call ‘Venus’.
