Just before 7 p.m. on Friday evening, I went outside to retrieve my camera bag from my Jeep and to put said Jeep in the garage. I glanced up above the garage and noticed a sliver of the new moon glowing in the black sky. Just to the left of the moon's image was a bright and distant star behind the moon, and ever so faintly beyond that, another incredibly distant and faint squiggle of light. On an impulse, I pulled out my camera and took a couple of quick shots of the distant scene. The 300 mm lens was on the camera and I made a futile attempt to hold the camera steady. I expected little but was still intrigued a little with the resulting dancing images. It was too bitterly cold for another shot. Don't ask me where that red sky came from. Even though I have a Nikon, I haven't a clue how it works. I just point it and press the shutter.
