Ok, since I didn't get the chance to see the total lunar eclipse earlier this week, I might as well share my old photo set of the previous one, on Dec 10th 2011.

I came close to have a complete set from beginning to the end, only to be spoilt by some clouds towards the end. 

Anyway, I'm pretty darn happy with this collection.

Really like this shot!
The lunar eclipse, around 5-10 minutes ago. I was lucky that it rose in the clear spot straight down the street (and that there were no cars...or clouds!). The image is cropped from a larger frame, as I don't have any great lenses for eclipse shots, and the "middle of the road" location ruled out setting up the scope!

Thanks :-) I almost missed it in the evening light, because I expected it to be behind the trees, and it was quite hard to spot while this low down.

There is always something nice about Milky Way under the brightening dawn sky.
First Light - Sea Isle City, New Jersey 

Dawn's early light starts to show over the horizon as Venus shines below the Milky Way. 

Capturing the first light of the day as the last light from the stars quickly faded felt like a truly special moment. It was beautiful to watch, but as more color began to show I knew my time to capture everything was drawing short. I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you for commenting, +1's, and sharing!

This is a superb photo on Venus occulting Lamdba Aquarii by John Broughton from  Gold Coast, Australia. Got this link from the IOTAoccultations yahoo group.

Once upon a time, when I was discussing a possibility of designing a true autonomous observatory, the idea was scorned by some people 'pretty high up' in the hierarchy of the local astronomy world.

Oh well... out of respect I keep quiet and 'follow the stream'. A person with no 'title' in their names rarely get any 'second look' in the world I live in.

I wonder what the comments will be like when I show this article. :-}

Hello Space Fans!

Tonight there will be a total lunar eclipse tonight in the Western Hemisphere. 

+Scott Lewis  will be heading to Cerritos College in Norwalk, CA to do some on-site outreach with Dr. +Thad Szabo. Internet permitting, we'll be attempting to bring in a live feed of the lunar eclipse from LA and hopefully connect with our friends from the +Virtual Star Party  and bring in feeds from there too!

If you're in the Los Angeles area, you are more than welcome to join us on site. The event starts at 10:30 p.m. PT and parking is free after 10 p.m.

Cerritos College: 11190 Alondra Blvd. Norwalk, CA 90650
Parking Lot C-6 off of Studebaker, just south of Alondra Blvd.

Not local? That's okay too! Share with us your pictures of the eclipse in the event below! 

Keep Looking Up!

Great stuff!
Mars Opposition Season 2014: Images From Around the World: Some great reader pics and vids of the Red Planet!
Did you see it? Last night, the Red Planet rose in the east as it passed opposition for 2014, and astrophotographers the world over were ready to greet it.  And although Mars gets slightly closer to us over the coming week, opposition marks the point at which Mars is 180 degrees “opposite” to the setting…
