Last Tuesday's Pics, March 31

March 31, though it was very windy, it was also very sunny.  I set up my scope to get a few pics of the Sun.  There was one big sunspot visible through my scope about 5:30.

While I was waiting for the Sun to set ~ I dabbled with a couple of Earth objects through the scope:

Just because I could.... =)

More pictures of Comet Lovejoy <3  Not too bad considering it's getting lower, moving away from the Earth, moving away from the Sun, and the Moon was pretty darn bright.

A waxing gibbous.....

My porch....  soooo convenient, far from perfect, but I am grateful for nighttime skies and stars =)

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
