This video was a breakthrough for me in the sense that after nearly five months of lockdown I finally felt safe enough to walk from my home to Ocean Beach here in San Francisco, which is about a five mile walk, and which I used to regularly enjoy before the pandemic.
It was the full Moon conjunct Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, and the call of comet Neowise, which got my butt out the door on a rare warm beautiful day in the midst of our normally foggy summer weather. Because it has been so foggy I have not had a chance to see the comet since an amazing experience in the morning sky when Neowise first became visible over San Francisco. I saw that there was a good chance that there would be clear western skies at the beach and I was super excited to get one last chance to see this very rare celestial event.
As you will see, I had a very special night at the beach with the full Moon rising over the dunes, and with my ginormous binoculars, sky app, and the stars. You'll have to watch to see if I saw Neo, but I definitely broke free of the Matrix at least for one night. At the end of the video I include a clip from two nights earlier, as the Moon was first coming into the conjunction with Jupiter and Saturn, when I had an amazing close encounter with a Red Tailed Hawk which flew right by me and landed on a branch right in front of the Moon.
Sending blessings to you all.
