Neversink Mountain Happenings


Tonight I was with two of my kinsmen. We were looking up at the clear night sky, and we noticed that streams from jets had set almost perfect triangles that outlined the constellation of Orion. Interestingly, to the right of Orion, we noticed that the lines of the triangles had created a giant Valknut in the sky!

The left-most angle of the Valknut almost touched Delta Orionis (Mintaka), which, interestingly, is one of the star's in the constellation known to earlier Teutonic generations as "Frigg's Distaff." It was one of those instances in which I wish I had a camera capable of capturing night shots!

Also, Ewicher Yeeger has been heard the last two nights on nearby Neversink Mountain. The rumblings have been heard late at night and into the early morning. :)
