Orion

The stars were brilliant last night. As I was walking into the house, I glanced up and saw a familiar friend. Orion, my favourite and one of the most easily recognizable constellations. I just had to grab my camera.
(2nd picture edited to outline Orion. Key: look out for Orion's belt, easy to find)
Reminds me of a certain night at Port Dickson in 1994.
Holy crap. Has it been that long?

I couldn't see it at first. I guess the astronomy class that I took in college was flushed down the toilet!LOL!

ps. Sometimes, you can get very good view of the stars on some parts of I-94 (between Maple Grove and St Cloud) and Northern lights between Hwy 10 to 64, going up to Bemidji.
