Astronomy makes a good winter hobby

While I love the snow part of winter (which we don’t get nearly enough of down here in in Poughkeepsie), I used to hate the dark part of winter.  The Sun setting at 4:45 in December is sort of depressing.

I say I used to, because now I’m eager for sundown, as it means I can grab the binoculars or the telescope and wander outside.  Now, a 6 pm sunset in October is great.
