Orion and Taurus

I wasn’t really expecting to look out the window before bed last night and see stars, particularly after the heavy snow we’d had most of the day. Margaret was already in bed, but we’d been watching Wonders of the Solar System on bluray, which inspired me first off to head out and take a look, but then also to grab the camera and tripod.

I’ve been working from home since the snow started and am getting somewhat stir crazy, so any opportunity to get out, even if only into the garden is welcome. It was nice and cold, about -8 according to the Met Office. I don’t remember the last time I saw the stars so clear from the town.
