Thanks Kat! We had, as you say some nice visitors; I'm looking forward to when Jupiter shows up again, as it always adds another bright light.

Thanks Heidrun! Up to now, we've had a good share of clear night skies; now that the night's are growing longer, I hope that continues.

Thanks Arlene! We don't need any more humidity though, as it is one of the sweaty summer mornings here, with rain on the doorstep!

Ahhh, you rose early enough to beat the sun's fading effect on these lovely stars. Well done, Bill!
