We're back into that long dark tunnel of late autumn again, going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark.  I do like the extra time to see the stars though, especially during a cold, quiet, morning walk… nice not to have to get up at 4am to see the morning stars. 6 is so much more reasonable.  I've been watching the beautiful Venus/Jupiter/Mars syzygy that's been playing out since late summer.

Our annual pre-Solstice sale runs from 'Black Friday' through 'Cyber Monday.'  That's from the 27th through the 30th.  All orders placed with the following code: Christmas_Morning_Orion will be discounted 21%.  

Note that these orders are for Christmas delivery, and not our usual 3 to 4 days turn-around.  You'll have them for Christmas, probably well before Christmas, so not to panic.  Order early, and tell your friends.  This year the December full moon – traditionally, the Long Night Moon – falls on Christmas day.  It's officially full at 6:11 in the morning as it sets west in the constellation Orion.

Majestic Orion, from the Sumerian Uru-anna, meaning 'Light of the Sky.'

Angel of the Waters with the Long Night Moon

 

Thanks everyone.
