Unfamiliar view of the familiar

Reactions: 

From where I live the Southern Cross is not nearly as low on the horizon, still an amazing picture of our southern stellar guide...
This picture makes me think of Karen Zoid's song Southern Skies... Cool lyrics that I as a South African can relate..
Doom da da da da doomda doo da
Doom da da da da doomda dee
Doom da da da da doomda da da da da da
Stop everything
Look up to the sky
These cries
Solstice born
Thoughts of you

Doom da da da da doomda doo da
Doom da da da da doomda dee
Doom da da da da doomda da da da da da

Stop everything
Look up to the stars
Sometimes you need them
Sunshine requiem

There’s a hole in the southern sky tonight
As I watch you smile
These things that supposedly happen for reasons
Got none at all
All your friends…
They come to see the show
As I watch you smile
Walking away with my heart and my smile (x2)

Hope that you’ll find your soul
Hope you’re there to remind me of mine
Hope that you find yourself again
There’s a hole in the southern sky tonight
As I watch you smile
Leaves falling indefinitely after the season
Something small
All your friends
They came to see the show
All those things I wish I didn’t know
Someone teach me how to let this go
Let it go
Walking away with my heart and my smile (x2)
"We are bits of stellar matter that got cold by accident, bits of a star gone wrong." Sir Arthur Eddington (1882 - 1944)
