Well, I got out there as I said I would last week for this partial eclipse. It wasn’t as cold as I thought it would be but there were some clouds that created a weird maroon halo-ee thing. In the second image, you’ll see the Pleiades to the upper right. The clouds added a kind of mystery to the scene but they didn’t help make for a crystal clear lunar eclipse, the sort I’m used to. I like that the extent of the partial eclipse is defined very clearly. I’m sure there’ll be more eclipses to come. I will say, that I’m finally recovered from the stiff neck I got looking straight up overhead!
Driving home from Taos last weekend I found I had competition in the pasture, a cow racing me and my car.
… and today the clouds lifted enough to give a glimpse of the thin layer of snow on Taos Mountain.
Happy Thanksgiving. I hope it’s a good one. Thanks for looking. G
