The nights following the solar eclipse were also mostly clear.  There was a few lightening flashes off in the distance and a couple of clouds to add a little interest, but generally a great night for stars.  Lighting and stars would have been pretty cool.  The moon came up later and the sun was setting early so venturing out to take starry night pictures was better than usual.  My sister was with me for this shoot and as we were winding up she recommended shooting straight up.  We even caught a shooting star!  What a great idea!  I also took a picture which included the river, which I really like, and yes there are some of the stronger stars reflected in the river.  The most predominate stars (a group of four above the horizon) is Orion’s Belt.  Exposure was about 24 seconds at f3.5 at 18mm
