The Official Bottom of the Front Steps Check

I probably look a little spacey to my neighbours as I wander slowly down my front steps each night. It’s a slow few steps with my head mostly skyward checking for stars through the LED sun, or streetlight as the city calls it, at the end of our driveway. Despite the futility of this check and a nearly perfect most recent satellite image, something has changed and there’s a few less stars visible up there than there probably should be. So unless Betelgeuse finally exploded and took half the galaxy out with it, we’re facing a little quickly moving cloud again. All in all we opted to sit a little closer to town tonight and breaks overhead yielded some active aurora earlier in the evening.
