Last night at 10:45 p.m. I went outside with my 15x70 binoculars and easily saw a very nice, large globular cluster, M4. All across the sky the stars were scintillating wildly even up to the zenith. The brighter stars were blobs that had their light separated into red, white and blue while the dimmer ones were more point like but still extremely colorful. It appears that the stars have the corona virus.
The temperature was 60°F and we had a 20+ mile per hour wind from the south which was loaded with pollen.
Last night was also different in that I did not have to worry about tripping over our cat.
Some ninny killed her with their vehicle over a week ago and never stopped or reported the incident, as is required by New York State motor vehicle law. We heard the "thump" from inside our house even though our windows were closed because it was cold outside.
