Description

We have only had two nights during July where sub could be collected - and even then we had thin clouds coming through and some from the fires out west.

From those two nights, I was able to pull enough good frames together to produce this image. 

The full story behind this image can be seen on my personal web page: Cosgrove's Cosmos

Thanks for looking!
