Conjunction – December 26, 2011

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season! Here are some pictures I took of the conjunction of the Moon and Venus shortly after sunset on December 26. I used between 5 and 15-second shutter speed, F16 aperture, 200 ISO, and a tripod, for those of you who might be interested. You can see the “dark side” of the Moon due to an effect called Earthshine, where light from the sun bounces off the surface of Earth and dimly illuminates the rest of the Moon’s surface. Hope y’all enjoy, and please comment!

Moonrise – September 22, 2011

I drew this way back in September, near the beginning of the school year, and never got around to scanning it (in part because my old Windows XP computer has since then crashed and the scanning software isn’t readily compatible with Windows 7). Here it is now, hope you enjoy! (I guess my inspiration of astronomy shows through a lot; space seems to have been a frequent subject of mine recently :P)

Moon Over City Lights

Maybe these Moon pictures are getting old. You know what? The Moon’s still beautiful. This one was shot at around 2:00 AM on July 10, 2011 from my window, looking west at the moonset.
