A whole lot of celestial happenings went down this month. The most prominent one was Venus coming between the Earth and the Sun.
This is so rare that it will next happen in 2117, well beyond our lifetime.
Speaking of stars, remember Galileo? Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational astronomy", the "father of modern physics", the "father of science", and "the father of modern science."
That's high praise for anyone, but in the end he was condemned by the Catholic Church for "vehement suspicion of heresy".
Turns out he was also poetic.
These words by Galileo are so beautiful, I had to make something for it.
