A Good Night for Stargazing

The sun sets over the Hudson, orange and peach and pink pale fire exhaling into night, and the first real star appears in the sky (Venus has been up for some time, not as bright as I remember, still plenty bright).

I swing my phone up to cover the star, and the sky on the view screen shifts and slides wild, coming to rest on a picture of the constellation Bootes, and I learn the name of the star: Arcturus.

Katie flexes her toes in the mild breeze blowing through the silhouettes of cattails. "I love fall," she sighs.
