Mars, Pleiades, Strix & my favourite tree
finally after a week of waiting, a clear sky. Mars is the bright object on the lower right, the Pleiades are clearly visible on the central lower left,
I managed to capture them here with the acompanying light trail of a USAF Hercules passing on a night flying exercise.
the plane was flying from right to left, descending from 16,000ft to 9000ft through this image.
