A Gathering

A Gathering

Venus, Mars, the Moon and Beta Virginis grouped in the morning sky. November weather is chancy, but this particular morning the skies cooperated. I was struck by the dimension of time as well as distance that separated the objects. Even the earthshine is slightly older light than the crescent itself.
