I’ve started to write this at 06:53, standing at the bus stop waiting for the # 59. The sky to the east is lightening, although it will be a good 45 minutes before it’s light enough to read by.
I thought I saw Venus. Turns out it was an incoming flight to Helsinki ;). It got me thinking though: as a child, growing up in Flowerpot, Venus was a familiar site in the early morning sky.
Living in the country there was no light pollution to hide the night sky, and let me tell you the Milky Way is something else to behold. Shooting stars, satellites, Aurora Australis: we saw it all.
I miss it. While I live in a quiet part of town, it’s still bright out there and it’s not often I get to see the stars anymore.
Which brings me back to my original question: where is Venus?
