New Crescent Moon - March 19

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

Hi Curt - I think we are tied for the new moon spotting contest for the month! grin I first got it in binoculars at 19:23 and Mike had it naked-eye at 19:25. I could not pick it up without binocs until quite a bit later.

Here's my shot - I boosted the mid-tone contrast a bit. We were up on the hill at Reimer Reservoir in Palatine. Where did you take your's from?

Regards,

Macro fun with paper clips

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

Another fun picture. If you hadn't said what they were, I would have thought it was an explosion at a trombone factory.

Hex wrench, anyone?

Crazy!

Check out the aurora clip on that site while you are at it. Really cool simulations.

What a face! I can't believe anyone would want to give him up!

Lucky you, Ivan. Looks like a good little companion.

April New Moon Spotting

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

Curt,
It was worth a shot, so we headed up to Reimer Reservoir but, no joy! After a crystal clear afternoon, a nice little band of clouds rolled in right where the moon would have been. Too bad, it would have been nice to test the limit.

Thanks for posting these - I look forward to the next challenge.
