spotted UMi from camp (La Salle)

After a hot shower, while walking back to the rig, I tagged the Little Dipper and Polaris through the clouds.


A day or two later I noted the latitude of locations. Near 41° at one point. And then I thought of the view from La Salle. Did it look different to me? At the time, there was a little niggling thing in my brain. Was it that it looked lower in the sky? Surely I didn't detect that. It was probably due to other factors...

CAO is 44.5.

Bradford is just over 44.

La Salle is 41.4
