Ditto here, Cheri. Between the trees and the light pollution, we can even see the big dipper anymore. Beautiful Bayard, a breath of fresh air!

Fantastic photo!! Here in the Netherlands it is so densely populated that other than in provinces far north, the light pollution makes it impossible to see all but the brightest starsÖ We go on vacation on the coast of Brittany in France every summer and the night skies are fantastic. Iíve made some nice seascape-Milky Way photos there. Unfortunately I donít see the red foreground photo that Keysguy mentions. Have you ever tried intentionally lighting up the foreground in long exposure night shots? Light painting can be a fantastic technique to highlight interesting scene elements.

Beautiful, aren't they! Jupiter and Saturn are still well-positioned in the southern part of the sky for most of us in the US or similar latitudes. They can be picked out right after dusk and can be seen until late at night. Mars rises a little later, but if you're outside at the right time, you will see all three of them in the sky. And if you're out sometime around 5 a.m. to dawn, that extremely bright "star" in the east is Venus. Uranus and Neptune can also be seen, but only with the aid of a telescope. The other four are easy to see, even in light-polluted skies (except for maybe Saturn).

Aside from orchids, astronomy is one of my hobbies. I guess I just love natural things, be they earth-bound or out there in our amazing universe.

WaterWitchin, I, too, am inspired by Bayard's photo to go camping in Maine! It's been much too long. We went there for our honeymoon, and I won't say how long ago that was.
