A Few Odds and Ends ~ Occultation, Transit, and Pretty Conjunction =)

The Moon occulted two stars on the evening of May 28, 2019.  I took these shots and then "stitched" them back together with Movie Maker.  The first occutation is a bit of a disappointment as star that was occulted drifted out of view....  But the second occutation worked ;-)




I keep my eyes out for ISS transits of either the Moon or Sun that I can see locally.  Here's a brief glimpse of the ISS transiting the Sun June 1, 2018.  Don't blink!



Out at the observatory June 15, 2018 for Public Viewing ~ I caught the Moon and Venus... BEAUTIFUL!

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
