Two Absent Heroes

At 8:52 (second sketch, right view) the sky had turned grey-blue so the clouds formed a ghostly mask over the moonscape.
The second hero, who seems absent but is not, is the Designer Himself. The heavens certainly declare the glory of God and their language is universal. However, this little series of observations combines heaven things with earth things by showing just a tiny bit of the exquisite balance of sunlight, sunlight reflected off the moon, sunlight reflected and refracted through a moist cloud-studded atmosphere, and the effects of earthâ€™s rotation in the midst of a scant hour of changes as the sunlight recedes. Neither the process nor the scenes I sketched are unique; they can be commonly observed. Nevertheless, the precision and balance of light and elements from a thin life-filled observing platform (earthâ€™s surface) speak volumes. Hence, the second reference from Psalm 19 at the bottom of the sketch.
It was a good evening to give thanks.
