    I was in St. John's, Newfoundland on the weekend for a Power and Sail
    Squadron meeting at the Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club. It was a beautiful
    cloudless night.  A local couple drove me up to Signal Hill at 10 pm to look
    out over the Harbour and Atlantic from that amazing historical site, where
    among many other things nautical, Marconi had made the first trans-Atlantic
    wireless transmission in 1901.

    dark, the moon and Jupiter straddled lit-up Cabot Tower on top of Signal
    Hill, all three right against a jet-black sky.  That morning I had stupidly
    decided to leave my camera at home, to save a half-pound of weight.  Dumb,
