We have had two solid weeks of clouds and rain except for a couple holes. The last two months have been the 6th wettest on record for central Virginia. So...I reached back to 2 observation sheets in June of two galaxies on either side of Ursa Major. They are the basis for the story and the sketches are included. There is religious content. http://christworksmi...n_paired_beauty

Roland,

These galaxy sketches look great.
We have come forward a long way since 2006.

Yep, I remember that you started about the same time. I still hope we might observe someday together. Would like that.
