Twinkly Stars…

Last night we watched this crescent moon set, with a huge dark cloud hanging over it.  The only thing visible in the sky was this little moon…

Then slowly the clouds started to part…IMG_0193-2

Reveling twinkling stars…IMG_0196-2 IMG_0200-2 IMG_0203-2

All within a half hour, the sky went from completely socked in to just a few little clouds here and there.  Then as we walked home I accidentally hit my camera remote and this was what it recorded in thirty seconds… IMG_0205-2

Kind of funny!
