Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 13th February, 2020)
Another great night shot.
Very eye catching.
You're enjoying yourself, David. I hope there is more to follow.
A nice picture D. The night sky in winter is very watchable. Better than the telly! Is it Venus that blazes so prominent at the moment? Someone down The Albion says it's Neptune.
Poet I think its is Venus, The Evening Star. First star to appear, I look out for it every evening, it seems to appear in the western/sth western sky shining brightly. We are lucky that we are able to see a ...starry, starry night here in clear Norfolk skies unpolluted by lights.
This picture makes the town look busy. Not as I have been told, poor shopping. Enjoying your pictures David.
I imagine If it wasn't for the church tower, many expats wouldn't recognise the scene as the Wigan they once knew, from this end anyway...
I like these evening photos David, a real change to see Wigan in the evening light.
David you're producing some very nice shots,keep them coming
Helen Venus is called both the Evening Star and the Morning Star ( as it's usually visible in the dawn sky as well.
Perversely Venus of course is not a star but a planet. Incidentally planets are are called planets after the Ancient Greek word for wanderer as they appear to move around the night sky but the stars always remain in the the same position relative to each other.
Thank you for that info Carolaen, I didnt know...now I am going to have to keep my eyes peeled in the mornings as well !
