I had to dash out to the shops tonight, and when I got out to unload the shopping, I looked up. Oh my! The waning moon had gone down, and we have few lights out here, so the night sky was glorious! There were stars so fine you could barely see them. You could definitely see the Milky Way, though. Back when I lived in Brisbane, you could see the stars, but the Milky Way was not really defined. Here it was a speckly swathe of stars. I saw Orion, loud and clear, but as that's really the only constellation I can easily define, that will have to be it. (Sorry.)
Oh, and no pics, sorry. My poor little dear of a point-and-shoot can't handle anything like that. Pity.
