Somebody up there likes . . . me?

Last night, I was walking the dog at about 10:30 p.m. The moonlight was making a few wispy clouds stand out, a couple of shades lighter than the dark sky. As I climbed a hill toward an area with fewer trees, I could see two brighter stars immediately in front of me -- they might have been Deneb and Vega, but I'm pretty clueless about astronomy.

While I watched, a straggle of cloud drifted below the two stars, and briefly took the form of a crescent before floating away. That formation was visible only for a few seconds and only to someone in my position. So the sky gave me my own personal smiley face.

I could use that. (Unless it was meant for Leila. Who is a good dog and deserves the sky's blessing.)
