Heavenly Bodies but Which Ones?

AN EMAIL THIS MORNING asked: "Can you guess what this is?"

The broad "guess" isn't hard if you've been aware that last week we could see, if we lived in the right place, something that no one alive has seen in the heavens: The Transit of Venus.

But if you lived in exactly the right place during the Transit of Venus, you saw something more, something that, when you think about it, is truly a miracle.

But what is it that you are seeing in this picture? Take a guess. Answer tomorrow if the comments don't catch it before then.

Canadian geese?

Nope. Not geese.

Interesting pic of the International Space Station taken from some hamlet in Slovakia. It's twelve frames folded into one. Not sure it's a miracle but the guy who took it was fabulously lucky.

Indeed, I thought of the ISS too. Wonderful picture indeed!
