Randy Roberts, who takes over on Monday as music editor at LA Weekly, sent us this link to a NASA site:

Planets over Pony Express Lake / Dan Bush (Missouri Skies)

Planets over Pony Express Lake / Dan Bush (Missouri Skies)

"Explanation: Beautiful sunset sky colors are reflected in Pony Express Lake in this twilight skyview from northern Missouri, USA, planet Earth. Recorded on Monday, a two day old crescent Moon and brilliant planet Venus shine through thin clouds. Joining the conjunction on the right of the Moon's sunlit crescent is fellow wanderer Saturn, with Regulus, alpha star of the constellation Leo, above and right of Venus. Moonlight and Venus light streak the almost-calm lake waters."

Hey, Randy: Thanks! (And, uh, we miss you.)
