My husband and I went out to Chaffee County Colorado, not far from Buena Vista, after sunset so see if we might catch a stray meteor before the moon would rise. There were a lot of very high thin clouds that seemed to diffuse a lot of colors in the sky and create halos around some of the stars. I was happy to capture the Pleiades rising, Andromeda high in the sky and a star (I think it's Capella) to the left of the Pleiades.
