Sun / Moon / Star Trails November 25

So.... I decided I wanted to view a few sunspots AND check out the Moon:

Took a few shots of the waxing crescent ~ to emphasize both Earth shine AND craters

.... and couldn't resist a video surfing along the terminator <3

At the end of the session I photographed a few of the stars in the Seven Sisters and turned off the computer to create a few star trails:

If you look VERY CLOSELY in the image below you'll see M57.  I did the hole lights-flat-bias-darks-stacking thing.  Hmmmm..... :-)

It was a bit on the nippy side (again)... check out the frost on my gear :-)

About Me

My photo

I've lived in southeastern Iowa all of my life, now with my wonderful family ~ husband and 3 children. 

I've been teaching science now at the local community college for over 10 year now.  I teach both in the class room and online settings.  I have a passion for ALL PHYSICAL SCIENCE! 

Sometimes I both drift off to sleep and wake up thinking of science.  Science ROCKS ~ but even more so the Creator whose imagination thought up this wonderful universe we call home ROCKS EVEN MORE!  lol
