Two Gems in the Night Sky

Tonight was slightly warmer than last night, the temperature was in the thirties. The sky was cloudy most of the evening. For a brief moment the clouds parted, and the sky was dark and clear, like only Winter skies can be. The stars were shimmering, Orion was high in the sky, and Mars was overhead. Then, just as suddenly, the clouds moved back in, and the evening stargazing was over.

The jewel in the sword of Orion, the Orion Nebula.

Also had a nice view of Mars, which is high in the heavens right now.
