rho spotted Jupiter out the window and was pretty sure about Spica and Arcturus. If Jupiter was the centre of a clock then Spica was at 7 and Arcturus at 10. I suggested we check in Skysafari. All in agreement. But it seemed different than before. Rhonda recalled Jupiter being above Spica; now it was up and right. [ed: Indeed, it had moved over 6 degrees to the west since early March.] She looked again: only Jupiter was visible. Still cloudy, I thought, wondering how the OSC star party had gone. Cloudy in the centre of the country.
