I woke up this morning knowing that I made a big mistake. I must have been thinking about it subconsciously or how else would I know I made a mistake a couple of days ago the second I woke up this morning? This blog is to correct that mistake.
I want to apologize to David of the Terlingua or Bust blog posted on October 7th, for my completely incorrect comment about the planet he saw in the sunrise. This was my comment: “That is a planet and it is Jupiter. It is up all night, starting out in the east and setting in the west.” I could not have been more wrong. Yes, it is up all night and it does start out in the eastern sky and sets in the west. But it starts out in the east in the evening, not in the morning. It is that extremely bright star you can first see after the sun sets.
I must have been thinking backwards or maybe I was really dizzy, because I knew Jupiter was coming up in the east after sunset and would be setting in the west just after sunrise. I just got it turned around. Maybe I was looking in the wrong direction that morning or sometimes east is west and right is left and the reverse is forward, etc. Anyway, I can’t believe I was that stupid since I knew better. Guess I just wasn’t thinking.
OK, the only correct answer that I can think of, since Mercury and Venus are not visible at this time, is Saturn. It must have been Saturn. Now, this time, I looked it up just to be sure that I am right. Yep, it is Saturn. Sorry if I got anybody confused, as if you listen to me anyway (grin).
OK, off to the flea market again today. Now you all have a nice day, you hear?
