Winter Stars [Nov. 13th, 2017|09:12 am]
Tony Grist
I was up at 2.00 and could see stars through the window- and a hollowed out moon low down in the sky like a child's painting of a boat. We haven't had many clear skies this winter so I threw a coat over my pyjamas and went out onto the front lawn to take a better look. Orion was striding south with Sirius below him down among the trees; I saw a meteor shoot across his lower body. The Pleiades were high overhead- so tiny in their sphere of pale light,  so needle sharp; they make me think of the insides of a watch.

Lovely!

I was too late for the stars, too late for meteors this morning. But I did catch the sunrise.

For me the very best thing about winter is having Orion in the night sky.

You must have little or no light contamination where you live. Seeing the night sky like that is so rare and lovely.

Last night was exceptionally clear. We're in quite a highly populated area, with major roads- and there's a fair amount of light pollution.
