As requested.. Ireland at Night. Sorry for the problems with 'ping' ...now back with 'twitpic'. This was a beautiful night pass over the Emerald Isle ...a little foggy, but otherwise a clear night.  The mystery Cape in my previous twitpic is Cape Bridgewater on the southern coast of Australia.

I was probably sending AX.25 packet through your radio as you flew over taking this. I might even have been watching you go past, if the sky was clear. I'm just a little north-east of that bright blob that is Glasgow, on the west coast of Scotland ;-)

It looks as if a little piece of space fell upon Earth. Twinkling lights, clear skies.... Heaven.
