gazing from 9700 metres (Lachute)

As we rose above the clouds, I noted the Moon, getting bright, high up. Couldn't view it straight on until the plane banked right.

Saw Sirius. Bright, blue-white, intense.

Then I saw deep orange Betelgeuse, and when I squinted, without my eyeglasses on, all of Orion.

Very dark sky above the pale blue clouds below.
