Mid-Winter Celebration

2019.02.04

Astronomers and their sensitive instruments have discovered a dozen extrasolar planets orbiting the blooming stars within the vase-like boundaries of Aquarius. There were more, certainly, still hiding.

What new discoveries had I observed recently? I was surprised to learn — and doubled over by how obvious it is once I thought about it — that Groundhog Day sits as a mid-winter celebration. To be impatient, wondering, proselytizing for the new season.
