This morning I got up early to see Venus and I was surprised I could see it through some hazy clouds, pretty impressive but it would be more fun with a scope. Allegedly Venus is visible in daylight if it's far from the sun...I love to pay attention to stuff like that and see what I can see. If I had dark skies and binoculars even I would be a happy skywatcher.

Just took my dog out for a walk--the moon is so pretty tonight!

It was nice out last night. I could see far more stars than usual. Don't forget that on the 27/28th we are having a lunar eclipse that will last a whole hour! Good night for watching the moon

Thanks Octapulse I will for sure watch that!

Edit *I have pinned this specific species down to Psilocybe allenii

Can you teach Girly with his dim wit and horticultural brown thumb how to grow these? Pretty please. The spores themselves do not appar to be illegal in my State.

That's some scary shit right there. Looks innocuous while waiting to assassinate your liver in one fell swipe.
