On the 2nd of July I closed my curtains one night before I went to bed but, before they were shut I noticed a strange multicoloured light flickering low in the sky in the northern celestial hemisphere. I Thought to myself if that is a star it looks amazing. The next night (3rd of July) I decided to take another look at this multicoloured light which was still there, Only this time I used my binoculars, I was seeing blues, greens & reds. We have all seen stars by looking up into the sky but, I have never seen a star create multi colours before. It makes you feel excited inside and you think that no one else can see this until you tell them and share the same experience together. I believe I was looking at the Capella Star which is the brightest star in the constellation Auriga and your not kidding it is bright. I cant wait to have another look tonight to see if the multi colours are still there. I would like to have taken at picture of it but I am not setup to do that just yet as I am very new to star gazing. I wish someone here can confirm what I saw and to post a picture of it would be awesome.

Hello to all!
Posting a photograph of the Summer Milky Way band that I took last week.
However, I do not know how should I feel about this!
This is when the band was right overhead, which is a rare sight for us and happens only when monsoon season is delayed. There was decent glow towards horizon but literally nothing at zenith.
19 degrees north latitude, around Bortle 3 level sky, taken using Nikon 5300, basic lens.
And with this, I prepare to have no view of stars till September ends
Hello to all!
Just posting some of the images I took recently!
(Total first attempt from someone who can't even hold a camera properly)
I was out to conduct a public overnight sky observation event, which was the last event before 6 months of monsoon. For a lot of time, we had cloud cover too!
These images don't include much of editing more than just some basic stuff in cellphone. I forgot to take the photos in RAW so either way I can't do much!
Quite happy with the first attempt. Will improve even more in next season!
Nikon 5300, with the basic 18-55 lens.
Any suggestions appreciated!
