I'm surprised a moth can mimic membranous wings.

Ah, Rafflesia. A stinking corpse lily by any other name would smell as sweet.

I wish I had my good camera with me. I bet I'm looking at 500-1000 ravens and/or crows. No Tom Servos, though.

Interesting. I'm camping in a very dark area this weekend because I wanted to take advantage of the new moon to see stars. That's quite the bonus.

That's serendipitous. Let us know how the viewing is.

Remember, insects invented agriculture, paper, and slavery long before humans did.

Milky Way was visible before the sun fully went down. No clouds and crisp, clear air. Stars were stunning. It was also in the mid 30s with a breeze, so bordering on painfully cold for this desert dweller (the overnight low was 17). Not sure when the meteor storm peaked, but I only saw a few really good ones. I was also done by 8 pm, so if they peaked at 2am, there was zero chance of me seeing them.

I forgot to look last night. Maybe tonight, though I'll be near a lot of light pollution as usual.
