2015 Winter Star Party

This year’s WSP was a mixed bag. There were a three great nights, but they were really cold! The Florida Keys arent supposed to be 42F (5C)! One night we had the biggest and loudest thunderstorm I have ever known - quite an experience in a tent!

I had persuaded my wife to join me this year, along with a crowd from the Texas Star Party. Although I had been careful not to promise warm weather - it had been expected and they were all a bit disappointed.

Here’s a shot of the sun going down behind a palm tree. Note the guy in the foreground (Craig) wearing a warm jacket and hat!

Jan & I started the trip with stays in Key West, and ended on Ocean Drive, Miami Beach. Both places can behighly recommended for sightseeing and fun.

Not long to the Texas Star Party, lets hope the weather is better there!
