Here’s an event that was just announced today that far eclipses (pun intended) anything we’ve ever seen—just in case you missed it. (You’d be forgiven since it happened 130 million years ago.) I don’t pretend to understand much of what the accompanying news accounts describe but the 41 second video animation, “Watch Two Neutron Stars Collide,” on the Washington Post site says it all. Kind of puts our own photography in perspective, not to mention, life on planet Earth :)

Sunday, October 15, 2017: West Point Foundry Preserve

The West Point Foundry Preserve, in the village of Cold Spring, NY, is sited amidst the ruins of a long-defunct iron works that supplied major artillery for the United States government in the nineteenth century. Today, an almost magical woodlands has reclaimed the land, protected from development as an “outdoor museum” by Scenic Hudson. On this, my first visit, I found the transformation of a once bustling, belching, noisy, and polluting armaments manufacturing complex into a scene of pristine natural beauty good medicine for the soul.
