We were advised to look to the skies the last two nights for a splendid celestial display. The Perseid meteor showers, an annual occurrence, were supposed to fill the night sky with streaks of light.
I went out, camera in hand, in hopes of capturing some miracle on film, but alas, I am far too close to the lights of Chicago to see much of anything at all in the night sky.
The heavens provided some consolation, however, in the form of a wonderful gold moon, hanging low in the sky and looking like a lost treasure. After this shot I think I might apply at National Geographic. :)
