The Heavens Declare...

The spacious heav'ns declare
The glory of our God;
The firmament displays
His handiwork abroad;
Day unto day doth utter speech,
And night to night doth knowledge teach.

Aloud they do not speak;
They utter forth no word,
Nor into language break;
Their voice is never heard;
Yet through the world their line extends,
Their words to earth's remotest ends.

Psalm 19A The Book of Psalms for Singing

Those who are using Jeannie Fulbright's book, Exploring Creation with Astronomy with us this year will want to bookmark The Evening Sky Map.

Being an Aussie, I've printed the Southern Hemisphere edition - there's a Northern Hemisphere map as well. The PDF documents show the night sky, and also tell you where to look for the planets that are visible in a given month. They are updated monthly and are free. Wow!! What a resource!!

January's calendar tells us that an Annular Solar Eclipse will be visible in parts of Australia on Australia Day (26th January). We'll have to get our pinhole camera up and running for that one!


  1. Thanks for that link. Trying to get it now. Being so far away from the big cities, we get a good view of the skies.

  2. Thanks, Jeanne!

    BTW, you've earned an award. Pop on over!

  3. What a lucky girl your Jemimah is. I've just recently come across your blog and I'm really enjoying it.Your garden is gorgeous!!

  4. How lovely! We are getting very personal now! And we are all loving the juicy details....xx


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
