I fell in love with Amy's pictures of that fabulous night sky .. moon and planets brightly shining. They were awesome.
So here is my mind boggling scenario .. just had some dinner .. stretched out relaxing with the girls (my furry girlfriends) came out to the kitchen to make peppermint tea and BANG !!
I looked out the famous kitchen window that has a terrific view of my neighbor's metal roof .. but looked upward and saw that fantastic sight that Amy saw last night.
I so wanted to get something resembling ? that beautiful "picture"
I scrambled on the kitchen counter .. not an easy trick .. leaned towards the window which of course hasn't been cleaned yet .. and had a multitude of rain drops on .. well .. you get where I'm going with this .. total failure ... but ... I managed to get some little star trails and a blurred moon !
It doesn't reflect how absolutely awesome this was .. plus .. those rain drops .. were a bit dirty .. back again to the window cleaning abstinence ?
If you have been drinking ... this moon should look fine to you .. all other non influenced people will see double ... but look at the bottom right hand corner .. baby star trail !
Click on the picture to see a better wiggle in the sky .. shaky hands seem to over rule the non shake option on my camera ??
Really CLICK on this one .. come on .. you know you want to ! .. if I can't get good pictures .. I want to get some really really BAD ones .. but this is sort of cool !
Very bad picture of neighbor's Xmas lights .. but .. look up and see actually how BRIGHT the beauties in the sky were .. sort of a guide line from Lampoon's Christmas to "Holy Hockey Pucks Batman !! What is that in the SKY !!!"
My apologies to REAL photographers ... look away please !!
P.S. You were all very lucky to be spared what my neighbor's saw of me in my red polar bear pajamas on our deck .. it ain't a pretty sight people !
