Friday, 9:30 pm to 9:50 pm

Wow, there are many stars. The crescent moon was setting (I think). It was red in color (Why?). After a few minutes, it completely set. I found out Orion's Belt and then I identified the entire constellation. I observed the star Rigel for a while. It was light blue in color. Then I found the constellation Cetus. I observed Diphada. I didn't notice Mira though. I also found the constellation Eridanus near Orion. I think I saw Eridanus. I'm not sure it it was that. I also found Betelguese.
I will come tomorrow to find out more. I also saw a patch of light. I think it was a group of stars. I think it was the Pleadies star cluster.
