It is currently 12:26 am and I have to be up at 6 tomorrow but I am too excited to not share! I decided to go outside tonight around 11 in hopes that the sky would be clear and got these pictures!
After many, MANY tries with different constellation apps, I still couldn’t figure out what I was looking at. I was going to post on here that I found Libra but I double-checked with a friend and found out it wasn’t! The brightest star in the sky is apparently Mars?? I honestly couldn’t believe it! Again, such a blessing that we are able to see planets as well as stars with our naked eye. I would have stayed outside and pondered about Mars and the whole life on it issue but it was dark and I was scared of bugs.
I have included the pictures in a tile format below so you guys can click on the pictures and view them up close!
Astronomy is so cool! I am in love.
