Mars, Moon, Night And Day, San Cristobal

Mars, Moon night and day from the deck in San Cristobal New Mexico. This morning I looked out the window, decided I liked what I saw, so I got up and walked across the deck to get this shot of the red planet Mars and our Moon to the west. Below is the scene in the eastern sky yesterday evening. Thanks for looking. G

Milky Way, Saturn, Jupiter, Antares, Scorpius

Milky Way with Saturn, Jupiter, Antares and the “cat’ eyes” in the constellation Scorpius from San Cristobal, NM. Antares is intriguing as it’s name translates to ‘rival of Mars’, more to do with it’s color than size. In size, Mars is no rival. Scroll down for labels. Thanks for looking. G

Moon, Jupiter, Rising, Taos New Mexico

Moon, Jupiter, Rising, in the skies over Taos, New Mexico. Not a bad way to start the day. Up early, watching the celestial bodies traverse the sky into daylight. The Moon, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn along with Antares the red heart of the Scorpion constellation in beautiful unison. A nice cup of tea nearby and a camera in hand, the day tends to go rather well after a start like that. Thanks for looking. G
