Moon in July!

We've had some sort of creepy red / orange daytime skies the past several days due to wildfire activity in Canada.  Here's the full Moon July 3rd.  It was relatively high in the sky when these photos were taken.



July Fourth I my scope up on our deck.  Amidst the neighborhood fireworks I took these pics.  The Moon is much more "normal" - but the skies still have a thin haze (I think) from the smoke from Canada.




I tried my hand for the first time at "projection astrophotography."  I took these through a 25 mm eyepiece.  Looking forward to trying some more pics with this technique.





Last, but not least, another video of the Moon:  ;-)

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
