We were treated to a JerrySpringer-esque shouting match / near brawl from one of the parties camping at the park on land overnight. After finally getting to sleep, I woke up at about 5 AM. The full moon was shining brightly, but I had a great view of the stars from the deck of the boat.
Orion is up in the sky this month well before sunrise. It is a very well known constellation, and easy to pick out in the sky. This is a shot I took of it from the boat. I know it’s dark, but you can make out the 3 stars that make up Orion’s Belt, and most of the other stars. Clockwise from the top are: Bellatrix, Rigel, Saiph, and the yellow-ish colored Betelgeuse.
I hope you had a great Labor Day! We sure did.
