Monday. February 6, 2017. 9:30 PM. 28 degrees. No wind. Did something tonight I haven’t done in a long, long time. Took a night walk. Didn’t go far. Up the street and back, two times. Can’t remember last time I went for a walk at night. Was back before I started having back problems, although maybe that I stopped going for walks at night was a early warning sign.
Low white clouds with lots of breaks and tears of different lengths and widths. Only three stars in view to the south. Two stars and a planet. One's probably Jupiter. To its left and down a bit 's Spica, Alpha Virginis, brightest star in Virgo. Actually a whirling double-star. Gibbous moon with a halo---a ring aroud the moon---straight overhead. Looked to be moving west at quite a clip, but it was the clouds blowing east playing tricks with my eyes.
