5 a.m. CEST. I open the window and find an amazingly clear sky.
I hear the kew-wick of a Tawny Owl and look at the Winter Circle:
The Pleiades high above ( I notice myself giving a reply inside, a loud ‘good morning!’) and the constellation of Orion, Jupiter travelling between them, Sirius to the east. Many, many other stars…
…and a shooting star.
Top of the morning to you!
