3) COMMENTS: Wow. The last 12 hours have been pure Transpac gold for Dark Star. It started with a beautiful breeze late afternoon, rolled on in to a spectacular sunset that was just warming us up for the all-night star show that followed. Moonrise was late so we got half a night of horizon to horizon universe. When the moon crested the horizon, it did so through a cluster of distant clouds that gave it an otherworldly aspect. Sailing under the arc of the milky way with a fiery red moon low in our wake is one of those experiences that you only “get” if you’ve been here. Made the race for us.
