The night sky seems to be my 2012 beacon. Though I'm always drawn to the night sky, this year it seems to continually call me. Recently it has been Venus and Saturn but lately it is Mars. Mars so wonderful and red. I wonder about the orbiting spacecraft around Mars. I sometimes believe I visit the planet in those spacecraft. Dreams are made of wonderful visions.
I know these are the bright planets that I can see with just my eyes, so maybe that's all there is to it. Night sky in the city has little to offer these days. But I do wonder about the polar caps, the water that is there, on Mars.
