More to come about this camping trip. :)

We arrived late on our first night at the Presqu'ile Provincial Park, the forecast predicted rain but we were lucky to have the sky cleared up for us as we setup our camping equipment for the night. 

The brightest star we saw that night was Jupiter, sitting in the constellation of Libra, follow by Arcturus, the Alpha star of the constellation Bo├Âtes above. and Spica in the constellation of Virgo to the right. 

The bright orangy-yellow light at the horizon you see from the high exposure photograph, it's light pollution from the city on the other side of the lake!

 Trying to make sense of what we saw.
