We had a cold front move through yesterday evening and it cleared the skies of all haze. I knew it would make viewing the Milky Way and hopefully some shooting stars perfect. Evelyn and I saw a few meteors but I wasn’t able to capture any of them on camera last night, maybe tonight I will have a little more luck. I can not put into words the incredible feelings we had just looking up and seeing the sky last night. As we stood there, in our front yard, I couldn’t help but look out and wonder if there wasn’t someone looking back at us from a distant planet. We are part of a Creation that no words can truly describe.
