Back garden, lit by moonlight
Back garden, lit by moonlight
This is the back garden of a house near Ammanford, lit entirely by moonlight and some ambient street light. The house is crowned by the "Plough" constellation. Note the second top star of the pan-handle. Even at this resolution, you can clearly see two stars in the picture - Alcor and Mizar, one of the few binary star systems visible to the human eye, used as an ancient eye test - you had good vision if you could see both with the naked eye.
