Brendan set up his tripod and got some wonderful shots from the dock of the Milky Way arching over Anchor.
The Big Dipper hanging over Springside, pointing to the North Star, just visible in the photo at the upper right edge.. You can pick out the Little Dipper too, when you know where to look!
Even the spill of light out of cottage windows lights up the night. Looking straight back at the big front windows of Clover and Nancy's house, the light is washing out over the lawn, but the sky above is still sprinkled with visible stars! And there is a lovely glow along that Northern horizon that indicates just the faintest of the Aurora Borealis!
