Monday Night

This is Essex the "Moondog" reporting that something strange was going on with the night sky Monday. Our photograph doesn't do it justice because Dad couldn't keep his paws really really still. Deacon wanting to lick Dad might have had something to do with that but I digress. We saw a crescent moon with two bright dots in our sky. Those dots were Venus and Jupiter. From what was barked us supposedly it looked like a smiley face down under in Australia and New Zealand, but was frownie face here in Key West.

We hope those of you that like this stuff got a chance to see it because it was way pawsome. We were a bit upset because the clouds got in the way, so we only could catch a glimpse now and then.

Unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed because we were hoping to see a moondog too.

Dog Speed,

Essex (aka Moondog)

A few days back, we saw a face! Yes, no joke! The moon was smiling & there were two stars as eyes. It really looked like a face! So kool!

Very cool! One time H-Mom saw the Big Dipper from a plane window -- it was so clear and so bright that she got all excited (imagine?) and had to tell everyone else on the plane. No wonder the teen-human gets embarrassed sometimes.

Hey Moondoggies!
We missed it - we were too busy barking at the neighbor's fighting cats!

Yay for the moon! The Mum loves the moon and the stars. Sometimes I look at the moon and wonder what that big light is really doing up there? Hrm..

Isn't it amazing that the phenomenon could be seen all over the world (it was a smiley moon in Malaysia). Cool!

Uncle Dog (and amatuer astronomer) StevieGrrWonder did not see this event. BLAST, the clouds were a thick blanket that night in Ohio and a cold spell of 20 degrees was upon us, enough to make you pee yellow doggie cubes of ice! Uncle Dog did see this the night before, although not a perfect alignment, and did read about it in his Sky & Telescope magazine the month before. But DRAT those clouds for spoiling the view!!!
