Good evening all, spring is a fantastic time of the year with nature kicking off and the daffodils in bloom as seen here in this Connemara garden.

Of course the night sky also changes with the Constellation Orion slowly but surely slipping away from us and dipping under the horizon early in the evening. That’s the planet Jupiter up in the top left corner of the image. We got a couple of hours of clear skies last Thursday evening and this is one of the images I came away with.

Thank you Conor!
