Something different again for Black holes, thought I would enter one of my shots in Creative Photography's weekly photo contest.
As I was on my way to our astronomy club's dark site to image the Perseid Meteor Shower, I noticed a little shack in the middle of nowhere, one side dark caused by the impending night the other side light caused by the Sun's last rays before it set in the west, looked cool, got a get a pic, so I slowed down looking for an off road to get the image before I lost the light and the moment. As I was doing that I noticed the guy behind me wasn't of like mind and almost ran into me, I think he must have known me, he waved at me and everything, at least I think that's what he was doing.
When you spend a lot of time under the stars one of the most beautiful times is when day turns into night, the stars, planets and Milky Way slowly start to appear with the darkness, working their way from the east to the west as if taking their place on stage ready for another Celestial play to begin once again.
Just got off the phone with Dr. Tony Phillips of SpaceWeather.com, we are so going to do lunch sometime, seems another aurora is happening tonight, never had both auroras and a bright Moon in the same image, should be interesting as the Moon takes away from the night, we shall see.
