Sunset at Stub Stewart Park

We were at it again last weekend. This dose of warm, clear weather, along with earlier sunsets has made for really great star gazing. Last Friday we battled the traffic for a few hours of peace and quiet at Stub Stewart. My goal this summer was to learn the night sky and the constellations using only star charts and last Friday I found the following: Pegasus (for the first time), Hercules, Draco, The Northern Cross (which include Deneb), Lyra (which includes Vega), Polarus (aka the North Star), The Dippers, and Cassiopeia. It was a good night.
