    Default Of Toadstools and Tennis Rackets

    Hi all

    Last night, November, 1, the skies were exceptionally clear, even from my light polluted back garden the stars sparkled. It was time to hunt down some asterisms.

    It's amazing the variety of asterisms out there, I saw a mini Cassiopeia, a mini Orion, a replica Delphinus and second coat hanger. I observed a toadstool, it was upside down, a spatula and even ET. Ursa Minor held an engagement ring, as well as the coat hanger, there is also a shark, though this beast eluded me. Getting close to the season, there is a Christmas tree in Aquarius. For the pipe smokers out there, Cepheus holds a sample, as does Cygnus. Cygnus also presents a nice smiley face called Vultus Irrisore, no, I don't know what that means either. The tennis racket is in Aquila, and it even has a ball.

    In July I stumbled across an asterism that was not listed, here's the link:

    Asterisms are fun, some require a little imagination to see, others, such as mini Orion and mini Cassiopeia really are what they say they are.
