Today was bookended by excellent lunar viewing. This evening's moon rose through sparse clouds. It came in and out of view as it travelled behind them. Backlit, the shapes of the clouds were illuminated by the moon's reflected light. Every cloud had a silver lining.

And, in case the cold weather didn't serve as reminder enough, Orion's primonent center-sky location at 8 pm served as a reminder that it is still winter.
