I have had a very busy day, so will just share a few pictures I took a couple nights ago of the constellation Orion. These were all taken with a small handheld camera without a tripod, so keep this in mind 🙂
I was out taking a walk while visiting my sister back in the Kansas City area. The sky was pretty dark, but in the automatic mode of my camera it was gathering as much light as possible and the picture here is much brighter than it actually was. However, you can easily see Orion.
My sister lives near the airport and you can see the control tower in the lower right of the picture.
You can see a few more pictures that I took four years ago in my post Night Sky.
Orion has always been one of my favorite constellations as it is easy to pick out of the night sky.
What is your favorite constellation?
