One evening, not long ago, I stepped out onto my back deck and looked up.  Wow.  An incredibly prominent ring around the moon was not only visible, but quite bright, as well.  So, duh, I set up camera and tripod to see what I could capture.  I love the night sky, especially in winter, and I don’t make nearly enough images of something I have only to look up to see.  Well, on this night, it was all here: moon with ring; the twins Castor and Pollux of Gemini inside the ring on the left; orion half in and half out, with its belt right on the ring in the lower right; and Jupiter just outside the ring, shining brightly in the upper right.  The blessings of a heavenly angel shining its cosmic energies down to Earth.
