Sunday night about 8:30 Pheebs and I once again headed out, this time wandering over to our country road walking spot. After a stroll up the road and back, dusk was well upon us so I watched and waited for the moonrise. As skies darkened I looked to the southeast and realized I may have made a mistake in identifying a planet in a Saturday night photo I had taken. I hauled out my Stellarvue 90mm telescope, popped in a 32mm eyepiece, and zeroed in on the bright planet. Sure enough, I saw right away I had made a misidentification. The planet I was looking at was Jupiter and I knew it was Jupiter because 4 of its moons were clearly visible. Saturn, not as bright as Jupiter, was further west. I have since made the correction to my Saturday night post photo.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A man goes to a doctor for a routine physical. The nurse starts with the basics. “How much do you weigh?” she asks. “Oh, about 165.” he says. The nurse puts him on the scale. It turns out that his weight is 187. The nurse asks, “Your height?” “Oh, about six feet,” he says. The nurse checks and sees that he's only 5 feet 8 3/4 inches. She then takes his blood pressure, and it's very high. “High!” The man explains, “Of course it's high. When I came in here, I was tall and lanky. Now, I'm short and fat!”
A man was out walking in the country when he saw a little girl struggling to drive a cow along the road. He asked her what she was doing and she said: "I've got to take this cow to the bull." "Couldn't your father do that?" asked the man. The little girl replied: "Oh no, it has to be the bull."
An elderly man was reminiscing to his young granddaughter about his wartime experiences. He said: "I fought in Africa, in Italy and in Germany. I fought with Montgomery, with Wavell and with Alexander." His granddaughter looked up at him and said: "Couldn't you get along anybody, Grandpa?"
