Vega setting, Vega rising

On the last post explaining what was going on in the sky in the month of December, I set a unique challenge: in this season of long nights, try and observe (or even better, photograph) the same star on the set and on the rise. It is possible now and will be possible even into February. Above are my efforts from three years ago with my old HP Photosmart 945, so get out and give it a try. Click on the top picture and that cross shaped constellation (pointing straight down) is Cygnus the swan.
