Friday's Photos :-)

Thought I was going to be fighting clouds most of the evening Friday night, and as it turns out the skies were clear from about 10:30 PM on.  I wanted to be sure to get a few more photos of Lovejoy <3 before it gets much further from the Earth.  While I was set up I took a few other miscellaneous pics.  I finished up about midnight with making a short video of Jupiter - then remembered reading there Jupiter was to have an awesome series of moon transits.  I caught Io in the act =)

Comet Lovejoy a bit dimmer?

M82 (again).... I think this is one of my favorites right now =)

The other day I imaged what I call the "E.T." cluster, NGC 457, without the telescope.  Here's NGC 457 through the scope =)  How FUN!

Last but not least.... Jupiter <3 video.  See if you can catch Io's shadow....


All for now ~ ;-)

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
