A few images I shot on June 14th..
I was heading out to my Mom's house and turned around and went back and grabbed my tripod and camera because I could see the distant thunderstorm.
I knew they were bright and close I didn't really think anything about it because I haven't spent my life observing the stars.
Twinkle, twinkle little star...
Planets... are still stars to us.
This is the closest I have been to photographing the milky way with the Tokina lens, it was a very dark night.
