If you tell enough stories, perhaps the moral will show up.


Lunar Velocity

On Saturday evening there was a pretty but not unusual conjunction of Venus and the moon in the remains of the sunset. Venus made the apex of an equilateral triangle with the horns of the quarter moon, about 3 lunar widths east. Looking at the same time on Sunday, the moon had moved about a full hands span at arms length east in the 24 hours. I had thought it was faster.
