The story and sketch are on the page on this link. I was doubtful I could see much since the haze went out 3 moon diameters, but with some effort in contrary circumstances, I was able to have a good evening. That led to the story with the observing sheet. There is religious content in the story. http://christworksmi...ration_contrary

Fanatastic job Rolinda! If the Sun stands for God, then the battered moon stands for Christ, for ..He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

Thanks all. It was fine night...even if the sky was not pristine.
