a better sky (Crowes Landing)

The sky was better this evening. The air was a very pleasant temperature. The Milky Way was brighter, stars lower down showed. Greg and Brent and I looked briefly from the cottage lawn. Later, while the camera robot shot images, rho and I watched the whole sky. She could see more than 6 stars in the Pleiades and was able to spot the Andromeda galaxy. It seemed to me that delta Cep was between zeta and epsilon in terms of brightness. Rhonda wanted some meteors; I saw two. We worked on a few more constellations including Pegasus. We finished the evening looking down! At the stars reflected in the undulating dark water.
