Magnificent Moment

Clear, cold skies in Seattle tonight.  I was just outside smoking, and looking at the stars.  The moon is down, the skies are dark, and the stars were sparkling like tiny clusters of hyperactive Christmas lights, flashing through red and silver and gold.  The atmospheric conditions are making them look larger, brighter, and more twinkly than usual.  One of those utterly magical moments, courtesy of the cosmos.

Thank you, Universe.
