August Aurora

I head­ed out of town, hop­ing to catch Mars and Sat­urn before they set. I didn’t have a lot of time, and when I got to a decent dark spot, the view wasn’t great, and high­way traf­fic to the south would have out­shined the plan­ets in any event.

Then I turned around, to face the north.

One of those nights

My dis­ap­point­ment fad­ed away.
