*Once away from the lights of our encampment I was able to look up and really see the big red lady in the night sky.
Thats the great thing about these exploration trips, I get to see some amazing skyscapes.
Standing here in the Swift crater on the moon Deimos , I think back to a time in the far past when Jonathan Swift described the two moons of Mars in his novel “Gulliver’s Travels”.
A coincidence some say, to know that Mars had 2 moons, 150 years before their discovery.
Or maybe not a coincidence, maybe Swift visited these moons and the red lady above.
Maybe he even stood in this very crater named in his honor.
There are many strange happenings in this vast universe of ours, so who can really say.
