There's a Moon in the Sky (still)

We made a video of the blue moon. You can watch it zoom across the frame at kind of mind-boggling speeds. There's a bit of a soundtrack by Vitalij Kuprij playing Chopin.

This whole thing has been enough to make us upgrade our telescope. We shot this video with a Meade ETX90 spotting scope on a stationary tripod. We just ordered an equatorial mount for it and I'm suddenly excited about the prospect of visits to Wyoming or New Mexico for entirely different reasons than usual.
