Impulsive Appulse Pic Blog

Everyone is going ape about the moon and Venus this evening.

Why?

Well, apparently, they’re very close together – but not really: they’re actually about 23½ million miles apart – but the perception is that they are close together in the night sky.
And they were even closer in the day sky too.

There’s a word for that, but I can’t remember what it is.
Quick google gives me “Appulse“.

You live, you google, you learn.

Who am I to deny myself such a blatant photo op?
Hence the image to the left.

And all this Micklethwaite-style rambling to fill in the space alongside it.
You may also like my long exposure sky pic, which is full of Cape Town’s light pollution.

Goodnight.

  • Wow, how weird is that. We could see it in PE too……..

  • Pamela > I think it was a global thing, dearie… 🙂

  • I am not kidding when I say I took the same pic and was too lazy this weekend to post it or upload to flickr.
