Have A Nice Astrological Day

Yesterday-- last night actually-- was a rare, once-in-a-lifetime occurrence of Venus, Jupiter and the Moon all in the same area of the night sky.

Fortunately, [identity-protected] and I managed to catch sight of this while we were driving down Katipunan highway on our way to the Happy Mondays poetry reading at Mag:net Katipunan. To be precise:
[identity-protected]: Look, a smiley-face!
me: Where?!? *looks up through the windshield, sees barely-glimpsed occurrence*
me: Whoops! *swerves to avoid hitting a crossing mother and child on the street*

Now that's one lifetime occurrence I want to avoid! Reminder in the future: try to avoid drinking too much coffee during cosmic events.

Uy, sayang I missed that. Couldn't see anything celestial from our windows. Smiley face. Cute :)

well, just as long it's a regular smiley face and not a Watchmen smiley face. ;-)
