The latest blog post contains both story and color sketch of an observation of these two common objects using a C8 with astro video during an hour and a half session, where a 1/2 hour was taken up with the NSN broadcast part. It was a delightful evening. There is religious content on origins; don't go there if that's a problem.

Thanks Frank. An hour or so does not do it justice, but I just could not make it longer or try another night. It's a bit different when you are talking/teaching at the same time sketching. Glad you liked it.
