“Dreamin’ Again"

Well I certainly had my eyes to the heavens last evening trying to get a glimpse of the Milky Way.

This time of year in the Northern Hemisphere the drink to satiate the celestial palette is somewhat, watered down. The summer months allow us to view the nucleus of the Milky Way. That dramatic part who’s density in stars is so captivating and encompassing across the sky that it is hard to miss whether you know what you are looking at or not. In the winter months in the Northern Hemisphere we see the tails of the spirals of the outer reaches of the milky broth. It is our alignment thus. It is still awe inspiring to me to see clusters of stars in the sky and pay at the very least, acknowledgement to our ancestry. I mean after all,  we were part of some star at one time. Perhaps when the big bang was just a twinkle in………………… something/someone’s eye.

This was shot last evening during a hike in Butterpot Park at about 2230h. What a beautiful night to be star gazing.
