Stars and Cars at Crystal Summit

Saturday night I went up to Crystal Summit, overlooking Arbon Valley, with some of my students (Alyssa, Jacob, and Mikah). Pleasant evening with clear skies, crisp temperatures, coyotes yapping, and a nearly full-moon. Although the moon made for a bright sky and landscape, I still managed to capture some of the Milky Way. The great thing about this time of year is that it doesn’t take long for the sky to get dark.  We did see a few meteorites from the Orionid Meteor shower. Here’s a few shots.
