The expansiveness of the skies, the observing period on these two objects, and a reading from the morning led to this observing sheet and the story at this link: http://christworksmi...ration_hallowed

There is religious content.

Roland,
Another nice sketch. I like the setup at your Day 4 observing site (Pod and little house). Always enjoy reading your post.

Roland,

Very fine sketching.
It has been tough to get clear nights so far this spring.

Frank :)

Thanks, fellow sketchers. It was a great evening. June 1 was even more fun for me and is referenced on the newer post. Like some of you, however, clear nights have been a bit sparse.
