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 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! {!-{>
