Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 7th September, 2017)
It went over our back garden as well
What a marvellous spectacle to see and how insignificant it can make you feel - witnessing a comet racing across the sky.
It isn't a comet but a meteor as David said. Well captured, as is Ursa Major and Minor.
Really well caught, both meteor and star constellations. When I visited NASA Cape Canavral there were various superb illustrations of such.
Ursa Major?, surely that's the Chip Pan constellation isn't it Kenee? It looks more like a chip pan than a great bear to me at any rate.
"Then the Lord took Abram outside and said to him, “Look up into the sky and count the stars if you can. That’s how many descendants you will have!”
It is the chip pan if you are a Wiganer Ozy but I thought it best to use it's proper name for the benefit of our international clientele.
You're perfectly correct of course Kenee, I hadn't really thought the thing through had I?
I still think there's a case for changing the daft names of these constellations though, as none of them appear to be anything like the things their names suggest, apart from the Southern Cross possibly.
... I've omitted to mention the photo... Apologies David. You're reactions must be as a coiled spring to have captured that one.
It looks as though it may be heading directly into the Chip Pan constellation.
Maybe a coincident, we had a meteor (about the same time frame) ground out in Alberta or British Columbia, Canada. Good shot.
IS there a scratch on the photo top right side ????? Other wise not a bad shot.
When I said earlier that it went over our back garden as well, what went over our house was a Ryanair flight from Dublin to Manchester
If the thing came down in Kamloops Ken, there's a high likelihood that it may have caused fifty, or even a hundred dollars worth of damage. What do you reckon?....( should there be anyone reading this who actually lives in Kamloops.....I'm only joking.......if there isn't.......I'm not.)
