Lunar eclipse, 6:29 AM EDT on 10-8-14 from iPhone. Taken in the parking lot of my (prior to retiring!) work. Obviously better visually, but conveys a bit of the feel of the scene.

 

No idea what those two bright "stars" are...

OK, before I bore you all away from this thread - last image. Clouds low in the sky were interfering and this is the last image I'll share. This one from 6:45 AM EDT on 10-8-14.

So a couple of weeks later, on 10-23-14, there was a partial solar eclipse near to sunset. At home we have a poor western horizon due to ground slope, so my lovely bride and I drove a couple of miles to our town park, where friendly horizons promised a much better view.

 

A few images from the partial solar eclipse using the only astronomical telescope I still have, the ETX-90, taken through the eyepiece handheld.

 

This one from 4:28 PM EDT near the very beginning of the event. A very nice sunspot complex also featured!

THE LAST ONES! (Feel free to be relieved or disappointed ... wink.gif )

 

4:51 PM EDT - 4:53 PM EDT, now with more or less correct orientation regarding the trees/ground - Sun setting into the trees. Not sure why the last two are blurry...probably "operator error"...
