Chaos_Being Great pictures. I didn't have a suitable camera or filters so I just watched the online footage. I would have loved to have seen it directly.

Chaoslord Awesome pics. This was one of the things I was looking forward to down here. Clouds never broke for me. Figures though barley every rains here. Lmao.

Agreed, it is so awe inspiring and humbling to see how massive the rest of the universe is.
