My muse: The Moon, Planets and Stars

Change, change, change; that’s what expected of us all. It has always been the case but the turnover is a little faster these days. If this bugs you, like it bugs me, go outside on a clear night and look at the Cosmos. If you live in a dirty city get out of it for a night. This will remind you, most conclusively, that nothing much has changed. I photograph it every now and then. I have been for 35 years. I am a beginner at it but maybe I’ll nail it in the end. In this photograph I have inadvertantly captured the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite gallaxy of the Milky Way. I was rapt when I spotted this, because I did not expect it. There is a Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) as well. Next time I will capture both.looking south shortest day 15See more examples of muse here

    • Thank you Joanne. The Magellanic clouds are small sister galaxies to our own. The first European to discover and record them was Ferdinand Magellan when he ventured to the bottom of South America on his circumnavigation of the globe. I doubt if you would ever be able to see them from Canada or most of the US. but you may have seen them when you visited the Australian outback a few years ago.
