An old friend

Here is a shot of Orion. Note the green tinge to the snow in the foreground, that is from the bright aurora overhead, behind and to my left when I took the shot.

This constellation is like an old friend to me, he seems to follow me around.

I can remember many a night as an undergraduate at Leicester, staggering back home (obviously only at the weekend!) across Vicky park and seeing Orion stood over the house. Funny how some things always stay with you.

Funnily enough the other evening I was walking home from work and it was a beautiful clear night (which is rare enough round here at this time of year) and once again Orion was leading the way.
