It was very nice to have someone to ask questions and get clear, understandable answers. M. had an astronomy magazine with him, a current one. I think now I can finally read one of those monthly star maps. It feels have satisfying to sort of understand the pattern of movement up there. At least a little bit.
The sky has been very clear by about 8:30pm. It's dark before 7:30pm, but somethings is a little overcast before it clears up. The waves very crashing and the tide was coming it, so we had to keep moving back a way from the water coming in. I got some flea or no-see-um bites on my ankles from sitting on the beach, but they stopped itching after I put alcohol on them.I think we are having one more star lesson, later on, in a few days. Maybe from up near that big orange house straight up the hill from Juan's store. They are adding more and more lights that stay on all night around Chacala, and it's really changing what you can see in the sky. Too bad.
