It's been a difficult start in Vegas. Sorting out my official WSOP credentials ended up taking days after my arrival and when I was just getting started, I got super ill. 16-18°C AC on the inside, +40°C on the outside ... it didn't take long to knock me down. I've been seriously sick over the last days (no, it's not Covid). Nasal cavities, ear, jaw bone and teeth... everything including my head has been hurting for almost the entire week and I've been lying in bed or in our Vegas home garden by the pool to try to get rid of the fever. Since I've been sleeping throughout some of the days, I've been awake in the the middle of the night at times and I caught this shot of Arcturus the very early morning.
Arcturus is what astronomers call a red giant star. It's visible in the Northern Hemisphere of our home planet's sky as the brightest star in the constellation Boötes (the herdsman) and as the 4th brightest star overall.
Its name stands for the 'keeper' or 'guardian' (of the bear), which refers to the its position close to the tail of the constellation Ursa Major.
An easiest way to find Arcturus, is to follow the curved alignment of the handle of the Big Dipper, the famous asterism in Ursa Major.
While I'm star gazing trying to get fit, rested and healthy again, the WSOP has been in full swing for more than 10 days already and daily updates are provided on PokerFirma. I will hopefully be back in the the game this weekend for some more photos and content about my (so far not so exciting stay) in Sin City.
In the meanwhile, there's a a list of links to the latest albums I published HERE.
