End of the Road

Just head out of the city, find a dark lonely Cul-de-sac and set up. Last night we had chosen a site NW of the city: 29:44N-9811535 W/Elv.857'- sky was Fair, cold- in the 40s/sunset: 18:13


Found Hershels Garnet Star
Viewed Venus, Jupiter and Saturn
Went to Orion, the belt, the sword
The star Mira
The Asteroid Physce-in Taurus
Scaned Monoceros
Looked at the Snowball nebula, Pleiades
watched the Space Station move across the sky
