I'll work on that...
The nearly-full Moon seemed to wash out the details of the desert in a flash-flood of light as we arrived and set up for the evening's guests. Tonight the attendees were all Hebrew speakers and so I was prepared to sit out the sky-tour "action" around Eitan and his telescope; I had my camera and small tripod along with my trusty 7x50 binoculars for scanning the heavens.
It was a small party that found us in the wilderness; a father, mother and three children, all eager for an evening of star-gazing. At first I thought there were only two kids; I was standing by their car focusing on Luna when I heard a soft snore from inside. Strange sounds, what you hear in the desert at night!
