Spot the comet PANSTARRS. (Hint, it is below the moon and to the right about 1/3 way up from the horizon.) I took this with my two boys on top of a hill near our house. On this, it is a smudge but very cool to capture!
“Partial Annular Eclipse Series”
Tonight in the northern hemisphere there was a solar eclipse. The annular eclipse is when the new moon crosses the path of the sun and creates what looks like a ring when seen at full eclipse. Where I live we were only able to see a partial (57%) eclipse. This is a series of six photos from eclipse start to sunset.
In honor of today marking the 40th Anniversary of the first moon landing, the website, wechoosethemoon.org is reliving the journey on the web with maps models, pictures and the audio as it happened. It all is to happen in about six hours from now, so go see it! You can even follow the landing as it happenned using twitter to recieve feeds of what was going on.
