Mars, Pleiades and Hyades

Mars is now midway between the Hyades and pleaides (click image to enlarge it so you can see the detail). This is a very attractive moring sight, with Orion nearby. Soon Mars will be close to Alderbaran, giving Taurus a second eye.

As my daughter and I were laying in the middle of the road (we live out in the country) watching the Perseid meteors fly thru the sky.....we heard coyotes off in the distance. Can you imagine the haunting sound of coyotes in chorus and viewing flying stars at the same time??!
As we sprang to our feet, we looked up to the north east and there they were ~ Pleiades and Mars. A shooting star dashed between the two of them....what a grand finale. Thank You Cosmos
