Moon and Cloud

There was an awesome (there, I said it) cloud near the Moon last night after sunset.  It looked almost like an expanded contrail or cometary trail leading the Moon.

Unfortunately in the time it took for me to get my camera, the cloud had faded somewhat but was still pretty.

I consoled myself by taking a closer shot of the crescent Moon.


Interesting Things: Lunar eclipse

Pictures from the lunar eclipse of 2010. Yes, it’s old but I’m re-discovering a backlog of pictures that I never posted.

Click through to see a few more pictures. It was a really good eclipse.

Interesting Things: Waiting for meteors

I didn’t manage to see any Quadrantid meteors but at least did manage to get some good star shots with Susan’s new Canon camera.

Still catching up on the backlog. At this rate I’ll run out again in a few days.

A pretty full Moon setting in the West as the Sun crawled out of the horizon in the East.
