Flying Between the Sun and Jupiter

today, along with all of you.                 Earth
moves between largest planet and our star.
I like traveling in our solar system.
Astronomers say it’s an opposition of Jupiter.
But I am not opposed to either.

Hubble Captures Vivid Auroras in Jupiter’s Polar Atmosphere – NASA image

Jupiter is at its closest this year (opposition) on June 12. Jupiter shines more brightly than any star in the evening sky. At this 2019 opposition, Jupiter shines in the vicinity of Antares, the brightest star in the constellation Scorpius the Scorpion. You can see both Venus and Jupiter at morning dawn if you have an unobstructed view. Venus will be low in the east while Jupiter is low in the west.

two silver waning slivers silent as water

a bridge that no one is crossing

 

A Long Lunar Month

She says “I follow a lunar month.

You follow a solar month. Too bad.”

Out of sync. Orbiting around each other.

Your waxing, waning and my rising, setting.

Throwing you in shadow today. New Moon.
