What's awesome

Sitting at Mozart's with a cup of coffee on a clear Tuesday night and using the free wireless to look up an online star chart to check out the constellations. Betelgeuse, Aldebaran, and Mars are all the same rusty color and relatively near each other. Sirius and Rigel are bright and blue. It's rare for a city-dweller to even be able to distinguish the colors. Awesome, and still so pale in comparison to being far from civilization. I need to get away from the light pollution sometime.

A raccoon just walked up to me.
