I would have to say our Dark Skies tonight was a big success. Lots of guests out for the occasion, a lovely clear sky in the north (half a moon chewing up the southern sky though). We heard the barred owl. And crickets chirping out the temperature. Everything stopped while the loon called in our bay. And the wolf pack answered when we called... We learned how to find 16 different constellations and admired the Milky Way... (the photo is from last summer, one of our guests sent it to us, and we think it is wonderful) Being outside after dark, getting to know the 'neighbours' is a magical experience. This photo was taken by Devin Crawley, who gets magical photographs suited for such magical moments.
