Comet Catalina 2013 US10

This morning I took advantage of clear skies and having the time to do so.... and went out to the observatory to catch a few photons from Comet Catalina (Comet Catalina is your Christmas Star for 2015)  =)

After a bit of help from my friend, Dave P, I put the correct coordinates in my calibrated scope and "Twala!"  I was bumping up against dawn (again) so I hope this won't be the only time I get to chase after this particular comet.



Here are a couple of pics of M15 I took in November that didn't get posted.  I totally LOVE gobular clusters!


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
