Awesome picture! Don't see stars like that very often.

Different view when there isn't a lot of ambient light from artificial sources to drown out the stars. I always like to see the stars at sea, they seem to be so many more and they appear larger because when the sun goes down at sea, it is as black as black can be.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I was a flight deck trouble shooter for the aircraft engines and worked the night shift. Between launches and when the aircraft returned there was a lot of down time. I use to climb down into the safety nets along the edge of the deck, lay on my back and look at the stars, just beautiful.
Another neat thing, was when we were in the North Atlantic. I could stand on the flight deck facing west watching the sun go down, due an about face, and watch it come up at the same time.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

I spent many a summer night in the safety netting on the flight deck of my LSD. Also was in the north Atlantic and a card carrying Blue Nose and member of the Polar Bear club.

Think I got one of those cards somewhere too. I know I earned and had one at one time.

Did you see the Northern Lights and the mirages when you were up there. We anchored off a little place named Andoy Norway and we would see upside down villages in the ocean and the Northern lights were indescribably beautiful up there, a real light show.

Didn't see them when I was aboard ship, but I spend's 18 months station in Newfoundland, saw them a couple of times there.
