Thanks to Dawn, I know what was happening in the sky tonight. Our beautiful moon was at a 10% crescent while gliding by Venus, which is at maximum brightness. Pretty damn cool.
Wait that isn't the moon :o) Since I already had the camera in the backyard on the ti-pod I thought I would play for a bit. I got out a Christmas decoration that lights up when you push a button and used it to take some photos. I left the apeture open on the camera, then I went running around the yard with the decoration.
