Tonight is shaping up to be a beautiful night. As the sun lowers into the western sky it casts long shadows and warm light. My thoughts turn to the long trip home from work –my late night– and the need for rest. If I were to drive toward home but continue on, I'd reach the Observatory by about 10:30. I would probably stay there for more than an hour, getting home at, say, 1:00 Thursday morning … a "work" day. I'll have to settle for a disappointing peek at the night from my none-too-dark stoop, then crawl into bed. Sadly, I should not answer though the sky is calling.
