One at a time

Standard

6 am:  Jupiter leading the way to the west; Orion striding out behind, with Sirius at his heels;  Capella almost at the zenith; the Twins with their heads together;  the last sliver of the moon and Venus back to back.  It is a wonderful sky up there.  Through a tracery of fleeting sucker-holes the heavens performed a cosmic tease, unveiling these brilliants – but only one at a time.
