What am I star-gazing?

April 15, 2014

I got my camera.  I got my tripod.  I am took some wonderful photos of the astronomical events that have taken place recently that were visible in my home town.

For example, the lunar eclipse:

  1. I hope you have better luck tonight. I have my alarm set to get up and look at fog 😉

    • Oh, Carol – it snowed again last night! No stars, no moon.

  2. I recognize that sky. I see it all the time.

    • 🙂

  3. Heh. We normally have very clear skies here on The High Plains o’ New Mexico but not for the past three or four days. “I feel yore pain!”

    • I’ve not been to New Mexico, but can imagine that the clear night skies are wonderful.

  4. I love your view , your pictures on the other hand had me squinting and looking for my glasses ,thanks for the laugh

    • You are welcome – thanks for stopping by!
