An unusual perspective and while on a harbor cruise on the Mississippi River last night. Not what you would think, but I hope some of you will find this photo interesting.

Barry,
I have seen that ship before, but I can't remember if it was in the Mississippi River as I went to New Orleans or if it was in the Port here in Gulfport, MS. The name is great !!! Nice job with the photo.

Nice shot, Barry!

No, I don't think so. I didn't see the Subaru star cluster logo next to the name on the stern of the ship.

Here is another one. If you consider nice sunset clouds as astronomical/celestial/binoculal it qualifies!

The steamboat is the Natchez. It is an authentic reproduction of a 1870's Mississippi River steamboat.

Taking a wife/girlfriend for a ride on the Natchez is a great way to fool them into thinking you are romantic........

It worked on my wife.

Never seen that particular Pleiades, but I have actually been on the Natchez. How long have they been running that particular steamboat? It would've been about '79 or '80 when I was on it, (or a similarly named paddle steam boat in that exact area).

It has been around for quite a while. It still packs in the tourists....

Not to be a spoilsport, but we might want to move this to the OTO.
