It seems odd to commemorate Earth Day by standing on it and looking away. But a little before 5 am today, the moon and Venus were in such close conjunction that the planet looked like a diamond chip that had flaked away from the moon's crescent (the whole of the moon vaguely outlined against the sky). Jupiter floated up and to the right. Theoretically Mars should have been visible beneath the moon and Venus, but I guess by the time it cleared the mountains east of us, the rising sun obliterated it.
It was a beautiful sight.
Today is Earth Day, though, not planet day. And until we colonize Mars, we've only got the one. Do something nice for it today.
