This is one of the biggest, brightest reasons that I love living in the country. There are thousands more in the night sky

February Night-time

February Night-time

The sky that night was simply to amazing to not photograph. The pic was taken around 11:30pm, in early February. The sky is so light because the moon was mostly full and I did a time exposure (30 seconds). You can just see Orion moving over the roof of the house.

I've always wanted to do some night sky photography, and with the Nikon I finally have a camera with decent time exposure controls. I was hoping to catch a Geminid meteor in the frame but gave up after about ten minutes because it was right about 0° F. that night, but I do think that some of the star pics were worth the effort anyhow.
