338: MOONRISE AND THEN SUNRISE (with alot of planets and constellations in between)


 And their courses are fixed, even the courses of the heavens and the earth,
 which comprehend the earth and all the planets.

 
Here are some photos from early this morning. 
 
Photo One: Taken about 6:20 AM this morning as the moon ascended above the horizon.
Starting with the top star in descending order is Regulus (which is the brightest star in the constellation Leo and one of the brightest stars in the night sky). The planet Venus which appeared to be exceptionally bright this morning. Then the planets Mars, Jupiter, and then Mercury which is just above the moon.
 
 
 
Photo Two: The planet Mercury just above the Crescent Moon.
 
 
 Photos 3 and 4: Facing East looking at the rising Sun.
 




"Abraham is the father of all the righteous because he was the first to succeed when born to an apostate father. Abraham represents coming back to the light despite being raised in idolatry. We face this same challenge. We must overcome idolatry by rejecting false ministers and searching for the truth. Just like the fathers at Adam-ondi-Ahman, Jehovah revealed Himself to Abraham. Abraham's religion is intended to return at the end. Abraham was the first to rediscover, " a knowledge of the beginning of the creation, and also of the planets, and of the stars, as they were made known unto the fathers," after generations of darkness."  [PTR pg 124]
