We saw the comet last night: a tiny unwinking star by the moon. My granddaughter and I saw it from beneath our Chinese-lantern tree. Reminded me of Kipling's poem "The Moon of Other Days." I think the moon and stars and planets are an interesting part of a story's scenic background.

That beautiful scene is in the Alabama Hills, Lone Pine CA. Gunga Din was one of hundreds of movies made there. A favorite setting for many Hopalong Cassidy films. Some of the most striking scenery in California, but unknown to many Californians. An area filled with frontier history.
