After returning from putting EldestOne on a Melbourne bound bus to start sorting out some Uni things, I saw the most gorgeous sunset. Despite the clouds, I was able to capture Venus and the crescent Moon. Unfortunately, Mercury had sunk in the horizon murk by the time the clouds let me see the planets.

On the night of the 23rd at about 930pm I saw the brightest flash if white light I've ever seen in my life. Driving north towards Coober Pedy, what seemed like a giant shooting star and then exploding, consuming all darkness around me. Seemed like it lasted it for a few seconds. Only wish I had truck cam!Post a Comment
