Three dog night.
I have just spent about twenty minutes stood in the shadow of a tanker watching the stars. The tanker shades me from the harsh glare of the floodlights at work and allows me to see the clear night sky. To the south I could clearly see the Dog star Sirius. It seems to twinkle red green and blue; it also seems to shift slightly as if it’s restless. I think I could probably stand and watch it for hours. The full moon is so bright that the cows are still eating and the insects are having one last fling before winter sets in properly.
I wonder if anyone is watching us twinkle !
