Autumn in New York

For the first time this Fall, it's cold. Blissfully, wonderfully cold and clear out. And I'll trade a brilliant cold November sky full of moon and stars over a summer sky any day. Orion hangs directly over our house, the Three Wise Men (what they call Orion's belt in Puerto Rico, the stars Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka), and Mars, directly overhead, shining a red so spectacular that it makes Betelgeuse look reedy in comparison.

Now, I've just got to see that exploding comet that Paul McCartney was singing about...
