  1. Wow, Janos, what a stunning sketch you’ve presented!

    Such a marvelous, swirling, gently glowing spiral.

    Very nicely done.
    I sat for a moment wandering why I have never seen this one before.
    A quick check of My charts showed why- +68deg!

    Oh well, I will save it for that trip north one year.
