During these next few weeks enjoy a rare opportunity to see five planets align in the pre-dawn sky. I stepped outside this morning, but it’s cloudy here so I’ll have to try again. January 25th is the best viewing, but we have until February 20th.
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
2 Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
4 Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
Psalm 19: 1 – 4 (ESV)
