Cold Summer Nights
I love hiking up to the summit and standing on top of the world before the night begins. I love being able to answer people's questions they've wondered for a lifetime. I love sharing what I know. I don't mind admitting what I don't know [which is a lot].
Here's a photo I took of the new moon last Saturday night. It was still twilight, not fully dark. It doesn't get truly dark around here now until after 10 p.m. I tried to get Saturn, Mars and Venus, but since I don't have auto tracking on my telescope or the camera, they only come out as blobs.
