My observing report

As I drove up the winding road to my driveway, I idly mused upon the current state of economic theory as I contemplated the La Nina conditions. When I arrived at the parking lot, it was filled with friends eager for a night's observing. I counted at least 5 telescopes set up.

I started my night's observing with one of my favorite objects, M 57. It was even more difficult than a little triangle. Then, I glimpsed IC 2341 in Canes Venatici. It took me back to the first time I saw the eye of God. After I'd spent a few minutes looking at that, I tried Abell 34. It somewhat resembled a whale spouting. After I'd spent a few minutes looking at that, I nudged my telescope to B 549 in Antlia. It gave the appearance of the clouds I'd seen earlier. Then, for a real challenge, I tracked down B 394. It took me back to the first time I saw whipped cream. After that, I nudged my telescope to B 635. It was better than lumpy darkness.

Finally, it was time to pack up and leave. As I drove home, I contemplated the events of the night, and realized that any night out under the sky with good friends is better than sex.
