Observation: Stars

We are deeply fortunate that Light Pollution is less of an issue in our Country Sky. Those Stars are lovely companions that hold us gently and swirl around us during the Night. I can't believe that Humans would knowingly or not erase the Stars from the Night Sky. And what do we see?

The Constellation Orion, the Hunter, is riding high in the Southern Sky. Orion is our Winter Companion, making his Presence more clearly known at this Season. Melanie and I also noted that the Big Dipper is in a different place in our Sky than it was a few months ago.

For so long and even now, I had no Clue about such things. I didn't think or know to look. My re-education seems in process on this Little Farm. The Stars like that. I like that too.
