Star Gazer

I don't even remember when I first became so interested in the sky. When I was single and working in NYC, I was so busy with a career that I loved and a busy social life,that I don't think I paid much attention - (Aside from a date or two at the NY Planitarium or viewing an eclipse or two, that is).

I think it happened one night as, newly separated with 2 children under the age of 5, I was feeling extremely stressed. Having just put the kids to bed I stepped out onto my porch to take a much needed deep breath. The first thing I noticed when I walked outside was that the moon was full!
