Active skies during early summer. Enjoy these seven photos:
Please enjoy these eight recent snaps! 🙂
I went out around 8:30 pm to check the sky for an ISS pass later at 10. I didn’t realize the lunar eclipse was underway. Here are seven pictures of the event – Enjoy! 🙂
The International Space Station (ISS) was due overhead at 5:47am this morning, first visible at 27 degrees altitude, due West, heading Northeast. So I set my camera for a 30 second shutter, and began the exposure when I first saw the space station. Note: the ISS is traveling from left to right in the image.Continue reading “Celebrating a Peaceful Morning”
From moonlight to sunrise, to sunlight, and to sunset, here are 11 photos taken over the last day. Please enjoy!
A beautiful sight, on a clear night! Please enjoy these four pictures, including one of my clearest of Saturn’s rings:

I took a clear picture of Jupiter and its four moons at dawn yesterday, and wanted to share five favorites of these distant planets. Jupiter is ~525M mi/ 845M km away, and Saturn is ~800M mi/1.3B km distant. Please enjoy!

With humanity so active these days, I like to find natural images too. Here are my favorite six over the last couple of days and nights: A Red-tailed hawk feather, planets, a lizard on a rock tower twice, Jupiter, and a red Moon I found the hawk feather walking Nance Canyon. Please enjoy! 🙂
The sky has been so clear lately as the Summer season quickly dries out the land, creating fewer clouds. Even a half-moon casts so much light. The last photo is a video still of Jupiter and four of its moons from early this morning. Enjoy!
