Whose house are we spying into?
Looks like it's Helen's house...

I've been wondering who to tell about it - we shouldn't be peeking into Helen's windows like that & can't see the playa at all.

Aww. Someone noticed. Now it's "down due to a pointing problem".

We are assuming that if Helen knew she wouldn't want to put on a little show.

I thought I saw Uranus last night.





I heard a rumor some of you Veteran Burners may be able to confirm. Someone years ago had erected a telescope on the Playa with a sign stating "See Uranus." People who stood up on the platform to look through the telescope were unwittingly stars of an "up-skirt" camera hidden in the platform which was transmitting the images to a screen somewhere else on the Playa. Was that true, or did that pop into my head during one of my nocturnal euphoria bike rides?
