Beautiful Night Sky βœ¨

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Yesterday I came across this post from the local weatherman…announcing a -somewhat- rare occurrence

Of course I had to go out and see. Luckily it was a clear night, and so I was able to capture

The Moon, Saturn…and a Fairy 😊

A few days prior I found this image that shows the planet – (and other known object-) sizes in relation to one another

To look at Saturn in comparison to the Moon – the itty bitty moon – and then go back to how they appeared in the sky…I don’t know what to say.

I can’t even imagine the distance between us and this planet.

πŸŒ“πŸ’«πŸŒŽπŸ’«πŸŒ—πŸŒπŸŒ“πŸ’«πŸŒπŸ’«πŸŒ—πŸŒπŸŒ“πŸ’«πŸŒπŸ’«πŸŒ—πŸŒπŸŒ“πŸ’«πŸŒ—πŸŒπŸŒ“πŸ’«πŸŒπŸ’«πŸŒ—πŸŒŽπŸŒ“πŸ’«

While we’re gazing up at the sky…here are two more pictures from the nights before.

This was last Friday…we thought for sure we’d get some rain. Didn’t happen, but the clouds were pretty impressive.

Something pretty cool happened here, in the clouds, in the distance. Constant lightning! It was quite a show. 😍 Sadly, by the time I got my camera the clouds had moved on.

Still a pretty picture though 😁

Do you like to observe the moon, the vast universe above us?

I am very fascinated by it all, and do sit outside at night looking up, admiring the beauty of the night sky. πŸ™‚

Have a good night πŸŒ™ It’s almost time for the full moon. Enjoy! 😊

1. First you take the 4 strands of silk cord, fold them in half, and attach them, with a Lark’s head knot, to one of the freeform rings. Then you start braiding.
