Endless Wonder

DSC_9108_wp

 

A couple of nights ago the sky was particularly clear.  The photo is a bit blurred but nevertheless it gives a glimpse of just what a wonderfully starlit night it was.  Orion can clearly be seen in the bottom left corner (though not as clearly as I had hoped).  This attempt at photographing the night sky has given me the determination to give it another go soon.

I read a C.S. Lewis quote recently which I think appropriate:

No: Space was the wrong name.  Older thinkers had been wiser when they named it simply the heavens.” (From Out of the Silent Planet).
