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.
