A clear night sky

Tonight's sky was amazingly dark and clear for Sydney so I brought out the binoculars, and just looked up. There was Jupiter in Scorpius, near red giant Antares. I saw nebulae and groups of bright young stars against a Milky Way still faint from city lights.

It is so easy to forget that the universe is full of so many wonders when you are enclosed by a city that tries its best to hide the night sky.
