No, really, it is! There's a very cool alignment of the crescent moon/jupiter and venus over Australia tonight. And I managed to take one non blurry shot thanks to the new camera and my baby tripod. The stars looked bigger and brighter than this in real life (click to make the photo bigger and you'll get a better effect):
And here are some other squiggly attempts just because they make cute faces! May the sky smile on us all and hopefully it's a good omen!
