How many times have we walked out at night and been bathed in soft subtle lighting, and looked up to the sky and seen Old Man Moon looking down on us. These days the effect is toned down by all the other effects from street lighting and buildings etc which is a shame as it detracts from the full beauty. I have always loved looking up on a clear night and seeing all the distant objects in our universe, and the thrill of occasionally seeing a shooting star with long trail as it enters the Earths atmosphere. Image 1 below was taken through my Birding Telescope, and images 2 and 3 with my Canon 20d and 400mm lens. The glow around the 3rd image is light cloud illuminated by street lighting.
