Three satellites

Three satellites 

From the heavens-above.com website I found that two Iridium satellites were to pass over us through the Southern Cross constellation. I wonder if this would be called a "double crossing"? :-) The third satellite was an unexpected bonus. One to view large.

Whoa, fabulous!!!

I never thought I was a great night sky observer, though tinkered with identifying a few constellations since childhood. When I was in Australia, I was shocked to look up and realize I recognized.....NOTHING! ;-b
