Fun Stuff: February 2006 Archives

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 :)

I've seen this before, but saw it again recently on ozguru.

Interesting Year 1981
1. Prince Charles got married
2. Liverpool crowned soccer Champions of Europe
3. Australia lost the Ashes tournament.
4. Pope Died

Interesting Year 2005
1. Prince Charles got married
2. Liverpool crowned soccer Champions of Europe
3. Australia lost the Ashes tournament
4. Pope Died

Lesson to be learned: The next time Charles gets married, someone should definitely warn the Pope Aussie Cricket Team.
