Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

I was coming home last night, and was walking down the sidewalk between the houses that leads to my entrance to my apartment, and I looked up at the sky.

It was a crisp, cold night, and a perfectly clear sky. When I looked up, I saw the constellation Orion, shining brightly and clearly - perfectly framed between the 2 houses. It was amazing. I'm talking dead center, just above the garages at a perfect 45 degree angle. Not to mention the fact that I live in a big city with lots of lights, so it's not often I see stars that bright.

Sometimes we just need to look in obvious places.
