Fun night

Had a fun night tonight.
Starting at Scotty's for a lovely dinner cooked by Kerry.

Then off to Michael's for an astronomy night. When I left work I didn't think we'd be able to see anything, as it was completely overcast, but the clouds cleared later in the evening and we got to see the moon, and a double star, and Mars, which passed the closest to earth tonight for this orbital cycle.

Ten second (I think) shot of Orion's sword, including the Orion nebula (upside down of course, to Northern Hemisphere astronomers ;) )

Ring around the mooney..
