Star Walk

The New York Times published a new list of must-have apps the other week. I immediately downloaded “Star Walk,” which turns your phone into a sort of telescope.
I’ve used it to identify some of the brightest lights visible from Manhattan (which are certainly minimal), and it’s really blowing me away. I can’t wait to get out of the city to test it on a clear night. If I could have kept this a secret from Ashley, I could have tried–once again–to impress her with my knowledge of constellations…
I hope everyone had a great holiday. I ended up having four days off–which was amazing. We had a great time with friends, took lots of long walks (in what suddenly felt like winter), and watched the city light up with holiday decorations. And we happily ate leftovers at nearly every meal.
