The night sky

While camping in North Bay, I was loving looking at the sky. I saw what appeared to be slow moving stars, but what was one of the many thousands of satellites orbiting the earth. I was gonna post about it, but then I thought, who would care? And how can I show what I saw?

Around these parts, the night sky is polluted by light. It's the thing about living in a city. However, it makes getting out of the city that much more interesting. Used to be, the only chance you had at seeing the night sky was by getting out of the city.

Until now. Google Earth just added the night sky feature. It's too friggin cool to even put into words. So here's a picture. Up in North Bay, we saw this, and more.
