Season's Greetings from Seattle

December 14th  6:10 AM
The Space Needle is all dressed up for the holidays. It is quite chilly in Seattle this morning ... 29F (-1.6C). Only one week until Winter Solstice on Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at 2:44 am in Seattle.

Moonset this morning in a sliver of clear sky.
Looking northwest over the Olympic Mountains.

Closing thought ...

The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.
