I took the dogs out tonight before bed time. A gargantuan polar vortex is causing epic clarity in the nighttime skies. I mean, M41 an easy naked eye object...come on!?! Too bad the wind chill values are -insane°F. So immediately after dumb and dumber finished making lemon snow cones in the backyard, and I made quick note of M41, 42, 45 and the Double Cluster, I was officially done. Fastest observing session ever.
