It was not two birds; it was not two planes; it was not two Supermen! It was a beautiful sight and I didn't have my camera! Tsk, tsk!
Upon arriving at my friend's home, I commandeered her laptop computer and Googled "What stars or planets were in the western sky on March 15" and Lo! -- Good ol' Google! It was Jupiter and Mercury. (left and right photos, respectively - Images Wikipedia) Of course, what we saw didn't look like the photos above, since those were taken from space probes and huge telescopes; they were much more beautiful, shining in the light cast on them from the already invisible sun.
These two planets will appear in close proximity for the next few days then (Jupiter, at least) will be gone from sight for quite some time. I found the information at earthsky.org very interesting. If the skies are still clear tomorrow night, I may get out my binoculars and have a closer look.
This day started out with heavy overcast and very chilly. The Spring-like temperatures of last week have gone with the wind... literally. However, though it's still very cool, the sun came out in full force some time after noon, and the skies cleared completely. It turned into a beautiful, if brisk, day.
Since I didn't start composing this post until long after my bedtime, I'm ready to call it a night.
Tomorrow is also a day.
