Star Gazing

Yesterday night at 12am, I was awake as usual. Went to the terrace to look at the sky. The sky was clear with the waxing moon getting ready to spend the day with Aldeberen ( Rohini ) after passing Pleiades( Kiruthigai ). Saturn moving from the twins to Cancer and majestic Orion and the Sirius looking around.. ( haha … )

I know I can’t use my telescope with the bright moon around.Now it’s lying useles – used it thrice for viewing the Statun and Jupiter and the craters of the Moon moon and few others. With lot of light pollution of the city, I could not view any Messiers other than the Pleiades. Need take this to my home town (but it’s bulky 🙁 ) – think it should be useful there.

Let me see….


In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then beleive them to be true.

Under the wide and starry sky. Dig the grave and let me lie.
