    Wow, that's interesting!

    While I was out at the scope this evening, I noticed a small green glowing patch in the grass, about the size of a US quarter. I dug around in it as I thought something that glowed had been dropped. Turns out it was a small bit of fungus, near as I could determine. Kinda fun.
