Day 055

We went whale watching again today.  Some good sightings, but nothing too spectacular.  More on that later.  The Moon was out!  And it is Full Moon the day after we leave.  This morning WAY too early there was a nice view of the Moon over the Hawaiian waters, but scaffolding got in the way…so here […]

Day 048

I woke up early (still on Mountain Standard Time!) and saw the Big Dipper by a palm tree… Click on them a couple of times to see them full sized! * ** *** ** ~Curtis in the early hours, on Maui! {!-{>

Day 001, 2018!

Happy New Year! Here is a New Year’s Full Moon. Here is the Moon shortly after it rose tonight. The edges look a bit rough because they are: when it is near the horizon you are shooting through literally a thousand miles or more of unstable air. Once it is over head you are down […]

Day 348

I went out to view the Geminids Meteor shower last night. I was going to go with Walter, but it was cloudy. Then Dailylife Daughter #1 called and it was clear. Then we got out to the spot to view and it was getting cloudy again! So here are the two meteors was caught on […]

Day 343

What was up in the Sky last night!  Moonrise! * * ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 342

What was up in the Sky last night!  Moonrise! * * ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 341

What was up in the Sky last night!  Moonrise!   * * And those same photos cropped to 100%…they are unclear because the Moon was seen through a LOT of atmosphere at this angle, and that much air can be very unstable. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
