The early morning hours bring a great show in the sky right now. A full moon, called a blood moon with a companion planet Mars bright alongside. It’s going to be a full lunar eclipse spotted by some parts of the world, not us, but we do have a great view of the Red Planet making its brightest showing since 2003. And while gazing at Mars this morning, I thought we now know that there is water there. It’s a salt water lake buried about a mile under the surface, according to space officials.
What a world young people are born into now… with ISS, Hubble, with so much out-of-this- world knowledge right before them….on screens, of course.
Still the dreamer in me hopes we all take some moments to just look up into the sky, the old- fashioned way….and think of all the possibilities.
