All gone a bit Darko
Sometimes I worry that I've been reading too many weirdo dimension-crossing books. Sometimes I fear that, yes, I have finally crossed over into one of these putative alternative realities.
Case in point: the night sky. One of the greatest constellations daubed across the vaults of the northern hemisphere is Orion. For as far as I can remember, on a cloudless night it rather resembles this, give or take a bit of imagination.
Over the last few weeks, I've noticed that it looks more like this:
The Great Hunter has fallen.
I know that its probably a seasonal phenomenon, nothing out of the ordinary. However, being something that I've not noticed (or taken notice of) before, whenever I see the glitch in the planetarium ceiling I feel enormously disconcerted.
I'm glad I don't suffer from paranoia. Otherwise I'd be a little too concerned that something amazing is going to happen...
