Hi Everyone,
Just returned from my Art Exhibit, and visiting my friend Meridith at her Farm in Iowa! Some Really Nice skies when it clears!!!
After the thunderstorms and clouds in Iowa last Friday & Saturday nights…around 2:00am it would clear off until 6:00am ..

So I did do some shooting of the Milky Way, but I will post those later…but come Dawn I had seen this beautiful site…

Here is a Shot of The Planet Venus rising in the East at Dawn above the Large Grain Silos in Dexter, Iowa! The wind was howling a bit as the storm just blew through a few hours earlier, but at least the skies were clear for a while each night!!!! Go out in the early morning sky to see The Planet Venus right now!

Best Regards,
