The sky was crystal clear this night with tons of twinkling stars of all the colors. Which is not always the case. While admiring them through the window, I noticed those three in a row and another smaller three below them that looked like a constellation. I couldn’t find the name of it in internet at first, but this was because they were part of a bigger constellation : Orion. What I have noticed was called “the belt of Orion” see Orion (constellation) for more.
Last time I saw a falling star was about 2 years ago.Tonight I got another one. Everyone sleeping at 2:45am, and me? Adjusting tripod in the living room… I thought “I must be nuts” but in the same time “ah, so peaceful and quiet,finally time for some photos” . I notice that I have less and less time for photos lately . I also don’t have the cam with me so much. It’s difficult to carry cam, extra lens and 2 kids only with 2 hands…
“Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!”
