And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.As I left the house at 5AM this morning, this is the sight that greeted me just over the fence. The passage from Exodus immediately came to mind. Think what the cloud looks like, too. It's just fascinating. And I believe that's Venus on the left.
