Last night I did a friend a favor and rode out with them to deliver a monitor to some friends, now they live roughly 30 minutes south of the city.
Naturally being farmer folk , we were welcomed to set for coffee and a shooting the breeze time, it was fun.
Naturally this time of year there was no where to walk you didnt get sink in the mud, lol.
But.....upon getting ready to leave, I was just stopped in my tracks.The sky was the darkest Ive seen in years, I could actually makee out the constellation of cancer, and the little dipper easily.Naturally I started to point out constellations all over the sky, pointed out where the leo trio would be, and the beehive cluster, etc.
After a while I got the feeling they were all wondering what I was blathering on about.
It was just flat out fun...lol ,and I have an open invitation to bring my scopes out, as soon as the ground firms up some at least.
