Basilicos, Cor Leonis, Stella Regina, Regulus

Regulus...what a poetic star.

Here is a poem I found recently by the Greek astronomer-poet Theodore Stephanides....

"I teach Man with the atom of his brain to weigh a flaming sun in wisdom's scales, to gauge the Galaxy from pole to pole, to read the secret of each starry train; and in the Infinite's unwinding trails, to lose mortality and find the soul."

Such poetry and dreaming these stars do bring.

Nearby.. a lone dog howls..

The Full Mackerel Moon will be upon us on Monday,  nearby I can hear a dog practicing its lunar howling! Up above, the slow moving clouds...
