The moon, Jupiter, and twinkly things [ excuse for a night run ] (Read 19 times)


Uh oh... now what?

    The moon, Jupiter, the Pleiades, and Aldebaran will all be on display

    if you have a clear sky to the west shortly after sunset... an hourish.

    The moon is in waxing crescent -- just starting to fill.

     

    Okay, back to your regular programming.

      Hoping maybe they'll be some much brighter stuff that may drown that Wink

      Uh oh... now what?

        Oh boy... we have clear sky to the west and north.

        Sleeping bags are in the car, off to a dark place about 8:30.

         

        Thank you AKTrail...even though we are on the bare edge of chance,

        it is always worth looking.

          We don't start getting dark until about 10pm these days. I remembered the Lights earlier in the "evening", then realized it was still broad daylight.
