Orion

| | Comments (4)

On the way up to Armidale I stopped at Flaming Mountain (?) rest area to look at the stars. Plopped the camera on the bonnet of the car and took a couple of pics. At 30 seconds, the streak marks of the stars are visible. This is 10 seconds. Still a bit of movement, although unfortunately it didn't quite focus right either.

The constellation should be familiar, if upside down for you people on the other side of the world :)

He IS up-side-down! His sword is like, pointing up, and stuff.

Scary.

Do you know, it never even occured to me that familiar constellations would be the other way round to those down under. So the world is round after all.

In this picture, Orion looks more like a dancer than a hunter. :-)
