The Miami Circle is perhaps one of the oldest structures in the US at possibly 2,000 years old. There were 24 holes dug forming a perfect circle. Examination of the earth revealed numerous archaeological artifacts, ranging from shell-tools and stone axe-heads to human teeth and charcoal from fires. 

I had wanted to get a picture of the Miami Circle for years but there was either not a good storm, or too many people in the area. Fortunately on this night there were few people and a nice storm.

Clear nights in Miami are rare, but I took the opportunity this night to get a time-lapse of Brickell. Unfortunately there is still a ton of light pollution blocking out most stars.
