What an alignment! (2)

Well, no picture this time - sorry, but a good deal of information!
So, viewed Venus last night - it was like a half moon in miniature -a great sight and then Jupiter to it's left with 3 moons visible.
Orion was of course splendid in the West and to the South-East Mars is a really good sight - really stands out as being "red".
I also like to just stand and stare (hoping to catch a shooting star or two) to take in the whole sky. It really is an awe inspiring sight - I could spend hours just looking up .... which has just sparked a memory of being about 12 and at my parents house with camp bed and binoculars - just looking up. Very good memories.
