I just saw the coolest thing: I'm not able to get to sleep, so I've been up here at the office (University of Kansas) working. Finally got tired. Went outside to head home, and saw this really tall cat-thing... realized it was one of our local foxes!

Bright moonlight, Mars just beneath the Moon, air still and cool, a bright-red fox jogging along the sidewalk just outside of Wescoe Hall. Magical.
