Setting & Society Sunday - Valley of the Mills

The "Photos of the Week" over on The Atlantic included an excellent view of "The Vallone dei Mulini, or Valley of the Mills, photographed in Sorrento, Italy, on June 5, 2019. Pictured here are the ruins of an ancient flour mill, sawmill, and public washhouse" by Ivan Romano through Getty.  Enjoy them all here!

Saturday in Space - Jupiter in June

So, apparently, "Jupiter will soon be so close to Earth you’ll be able to see its moons without a telescope."  I'll have to make sure I get a good look at this view when I can.
