So I'm letting my cat in before heading to bed and I look up.....CLEAR SKIES!!! Orion right in front of me! ✨

Clouds coming in fast.....no time to get telescope out so grab my binos!

For the first time I see M42 clearly! 

All I can say other than bloody clouds is WOW WOW WOW! 😁😁😁

Only for a couple of minutes ☁️☁️☁️ but I feel the clouds parted just long enough for me to see what I saw! (I know they didn't but let me keep that thought please) 🤣

I will be heading to bed now unable to sleep because I'm sooooo excited and can't stop smiling! 😁😁😀😀

Slightly warmer out than it has been recently too so would have been a good night to be out for a while. 

Never mind.....next time! ✨

Congratulations, and never fear - Orion will be with us for some time yet.

There's a lot to look at in M42, and also quite a few double stars in Orion.
