    Default Seasons changing



    Got up the other morning around 4:30 AM to use the facilities and had a look out the window to notice the waning crescent moon at about 15%. It was very nice temp and perfectly clear out, no neighbors had any lights on and all the stars were in full contrast.

    It was also quite a welcome treat to see Orion rising in the southeast sky and Gemini partially in view just to the east. Pleadeis was high in the sky at this time of morning and all the early evening constellations were shifted overhead or towards the west.

    Nice to see the return of Orion and Gemini! Can't wait for the fall season with the clear skies and crisp cool nights. The Leonids and Geminids will also be welcome treats as we approach fall and head into winter.

    Such a nice morning to get up so early, I usually miss this time of the day, so it was enjoyable.

    Cheers
