Old Snag, Almo Idaho by wetdog969
Old Snag, Almo Idaho
Last summer, Laura and I camped at the top of the mountain just north of the City of Rocks area in southern Idaho.  Even though there was a lot of haze from California's wildfires, we were above most of it, and the skies were beautiful.  I have to wonder how old this fella was when he dropped his last needle.  Thousands, I bet.  By the way, that stripe is a satellite, not an airplane.  Satellites don't blink.

Our Little Backwater Corner of the Universe by wetdog969
Our Little Backwater Corner of the Universe

I've been slowly trying to figure out how to take better images of the night sky, and let me tell you, it's a very humbling experience.  Our little corner of the universe (this is the Milky Way, if you don't go out much) is truly huge in the Douglas Adams sense of the word.  In 30-second time exposures like this one, I usually get at least one shooting star.  Looking at the images later, in full resolution on my big monitor, I realize there's a star in every single pixel.  And many of the stars are actually galaxies.  Yikes!   To loosely quote Calvin, "I need to go inside and turn on all my appliances".

Blow stuff up for a living. Put it back together on my time off. Not very productive overall...

I, too, love to blow things up, when the Marines let me play with
plastic explosives...I was in the Navy...I told my Mother, and she told me that "I had died and gone to heaven". She was right.
