        Procyon is, according to Wikipedia, the 8th brightest star in the sky. My camera caught it before sunrise this morning. I did not see it with my eye but the camera did.

Starting Again?

          It was dark enough and clear enough this morning that I was able to see the stars Castor and Pollux in the constellation of Gemini while I was doing my Tai Chi on the east porch. They almost make up for the fact that the early-morning, before-sunrise birds are not singing so early these days. I did hear a Cardinal a half hour before sunrise but the sun is coming up so late these days . . .

        The blog seems a bit late too. It's been a long time since my last post.
