Glorious sunrise this morning followed by more gloriousness while I was driving in (blinding golds and yellows reflecting off the clouds) and as I’m turning away from my car to walk into work I see this. “Ooooh, that’s interesting.” and pull out my camera. Next time I’ll get out the tripod too. It’s difficult to get bracketed shots by hand.
We had slightly more than enough people for a set and a few ceili dances and great music by John Burleson, Michelle Feldman and ??? (we didn’t get his name!)
We did the North Kerry set, Haymakers Jig, Siege of Carrick, Rakes of Mallow, 4-hand and 6-hand. Great music, great fun!

Today Susan and I went up to UNT to do a short Irish dance class.
Afterwards we went wandering around downtown Denton and stopped in to the Abbey Inn restaurant (and pub) for lunch and a few beers.
Susan had soup and salad and I had a wonderful seafood stew stew and grilled-cheese sandwich.
Yum. Highly recommended. Click the picture for more pics of good food.
The first SCMA ceili for the 2010/2011 season!
It was practically an all-regular evening with two sets joining in during the workshop portion and staying around for two hours of dancing!
Thanks to everyone for coming out, to Michelle and Paul for the music and Lybo for representing the SCMA.

I took my scope out into the front yard to look at the Moon, Venus, Saturn and Mars as well as wait for an ISS passover.
Soon after dark I was able to get a good shot of the Moon and Venus together. Click through for larger versions.
A through the eyepiece shot of the Moon.
And finally, a shot of the ISS passing beyond the house. I got several shots but they all show a bit of movement at the beginning even though I thought I’d set a shutter delay.
Fun, fun, fun.
