Hey, I see this same sky from my house! Great shot, Jessica!


Jessica G. on March 3, 2009

Hi Jean, thank you! I could see a lot of stars at the time, and even more are visible on the picture.

Jean Gregory Evans on March 3, 2009

That is fascinating! I am always amazed at how much better my camera sees than I do. We are so blessed with having these cameras... and Panoramio!

Added to Best of Panoramio (and YS). Best wishes from Italy roberto.r.

I agree, Jean. It's wonderful to be able to first of all take these pictures and then even better, to share and discuss them with others who love photography!

Thank you so much, Roberto! I'm honoured!

Do you know the constellations? On the left auriga & gemini, in the middle orion, on the right taurus

Jessica G. on March 5, 2009

I know the main ones, like Orion, not the others. Thanks for the info!

Jean Gregory Evans on March 5, 2009

I see one of the dippers! I don't know the names either!


kwalit@ on March 5, 2009

sorry, the dipper isn´t there. But I must admit an error: on the left is Canis major with Sirius (not Auriga). But you can see some stars of the gemini.

Beautiful Sky and very interesting "wrong" colors...

Jessica, this shot is so great! The very special light and colours, the movement of the clouds, the stars - I love it!

Greetings, Sabine
