The Winter Sky by RobertoBertero The Winter Sky by RobertoBertero

After the mysterious presence emerging from the fog shown in the previous photo, I thought I'd show this shot portraying the silent beauty of the winter sky, taken in the "far" March 9th, 2011 during a night spent in tent on the Mountains of the Moon, at 2.200 meters.
Yes, it is a real place, called in local language "Monti della Luna".
It is located at the border between Italy and France. If I am not mistaken the lights that can be seen on the right should belong to the Briançon area.
On the left you can see the lovely Pic de Rochebrune (3.324 m).
The moon (phase 33%) was about to set in the west (on the right of this image).

I thought to repeat this experience, but I've never got so cold as during that night, so, you know, I've postponed...

As indicated in the title, this is the classic sky you can see in winter, with the Canis Majoris (Sirius), the Orion constellation (Betelgeuse, Rigel), Canis Minoris (Procyon) and Taurus constellation (Aldebaran).
