Been so long
Had traveled to Japan during July, returning to NY late in the month. Since returning only 4 nights out and tried for opposing crescent Moons early in August. Had some suucess the early morning prior to the old Moon day but was unable to see it. Too much schmuck.
I did, however, meet some good people along the Carl Schurz Park promenade. I saw how the pedestrian traffic increase from noone to a busy pre-work bustle of people taking in the morning sunshine, coffee & newspaper, exercise, dog walking, and other forms of urban activity.
Tonight, like many others, is overcast with clouds and will be increasing. So another night for armchair astronomy.
