I went out at 3 a.m. and was disappointed.

I could make out some stars through the overcast.....


Sad

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

Yeah, we had mostly cloudy skies, so Jake and I weren't able to see much, but we had a great evening spending time together.

Yep, tonight, Orion was not up (it was just under the horizon, according to my now-easy-to-use smartphone with SkyWalk2). Cassiopeia was easy to make out, though, which is what made it one of the four big "landmark" constellations for our direction-finding, out on East Beach/Gould's Inlet.

Lighten up, dude.

Just trying to save others from the frustration, heartache, and disappointment of not finding Orion. Weeping
