I am thankful for the accurate descriptions of celestial events periodically published by Roy Gephardt in the Tri-City Herald.
The information provided for the August meteor showers and rare proximities of the planets Venus, Jupiter and the moon has permitted some outstanding viewing for us.
I was able to point out the closeness of Venus and Juniper to my grandson just before an unusually clear sunrise on Aug. 18 in Seattle. Many thanks to Mr. Gephardt for this excellent opportunity.
