While trying to capture the Rossette Nebula, the scope suddenly stopped tracking - I think because it "flipped"  Thought it was a pretty pic =)  30" ISO3200

Randomly gathering way too much light to see Jupiter's bands.... I thought these wispy things coming off Jupiter were pretty cool.  Some sort of aberration with the camera?  I don't know...

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
