When You're Smiling, The Whole World Smiles With You.



Before we get to the art fairs, this just in...! A rare positioning of the planets Venus (top left) and Jupiter (top right) and the crescent moon of the Earth provided a 'smiley' effect when viewed from Asia last night.

James,
wow, I love moon pics. I am partial to landscape photography but truth be told, just about everything on this planet has been photographed. My dream has always been to be the first landscape photographer on Mars...or any other planet in our solar system. I just love, love, love the photos from NASA that are displayed at the Rose Center for Earth and Space (museum of natural history). There is a show of pictures of Saturn on display now; also, if you really dig moon photos check out the "FULL MOON" exhibition now at the Rose Center for Earth and Space. IT IS A MONUMENTAL SHOW, NOT TO BE MISSED, JAMES! It is curated by Michael Light (landscape photographer who culled NASA'S photo files and spent a year digitizing old moon landscape shots by the Apollo astronauts) and features some never before seen stunning moonscapes. PASS THE WORD! Oh, how are you enjoying Miami? I am so jealous. It is cold outside tonight here in NYC.

In Brooklyn, on the other hand, it formerd a kind of frown, though the result was by no means sad. Feel free to ignore the music:

Thanks! I was with a friend two nights ago and we saw the crescent moon here in CA with two super bright stars next to it, though not a happy face, and we were wondering which two planets they were. Now we know!
