@Katy, They have been putting on a good show the past few nights, although I took a night off last night. After up for three nights in a row needed sleep :-) old age I guess.

I was wondering if we'd get to see your photos of this amazing wonder in the skies!  
They have been fabulous, haven't they!

Awesome indeed! If I've ever seen a astronomical/ terrestrial capture this is it.

Those not giving you a 10 do not appreciate what you've got here.

It's work like this that makes me want come to WU often to see what's been posted. Thanks!
