Simple Summer Sky Scene new
      #5976857 - 07/17/13 09:32 PM

Hot muggy still nights characterize much of our peak summer nights. Really clear skies are not that common, but the other night was a time to capture a simple scene with the moon and Spica. These are the basis for the sketch and blog post (address under my signature). There is religious content.

Roland,

I was in Arizona when you made this fine sketch.
Unfortunately it was very cloudy and even rainy so not much observing happened. This is a view I was looking forward to seeing. So thanks for capturing it.

Frank

Roland,
Beautiful work. We have been watching the moon all week. Last night my two year old yelled out "Dad look at the Moon its Beautiful". My wife and I just smiled and said yes it is!

Ken

Glad you liked it. The high pressure dome continues to bring us heavy haze and unclear nights. I set a record this week: set up the Dob 3 time when there was a glimmer of possibility that observing might be possible. I put it away each night with no observing. But, it will change...
