night skies


Last night, the full moon drew me outside for a walk, but the huge number of visible stars in the sky kept me captivated.  For anyone who has used the star identification app "Sky Tonight" you will understand how the constellations can come alive with a dance of animals and mythological characters across the universe.  Add a few shooting stars streaming across the sky and it becomes difficult to turn your back and go inside.

I do not have the proper equipment to photograph the constellations, but I post the two photographs above to show how much was visible to the naked eye.
