When we left our apartment to go get lunch it smelled like dead fish. It was trash day so the first thought was maybe just an open trash can. Walked out and didn't see any open. Then started walking down the block and the smell didn't get any better. When we hit the cross street and the sea breeze hit us fully it got even worse. In our hood that usually means there's something dead on the beach so we went down to see what was up. And it was a mass stranding of "By the Wind Sailor" jellyfish! Well they aren't really jellyfish and have some scientific name I think you can find on this blog somewhere. They are one of our favorite things that washes up on our beach.

Took an unplanned quick picture(s as in a stack of 20) of Jupiter from the kitchen. Totally unplanned and with my small telescope, no tracking (just a tripod) looking across a slightly hazy sky through a slightly dirty window. I can't complain.
