There's a Moon in the Sky (still) [Sep. 3rd, 2012|06:41 am]

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.

This is great!

New Mexico is my home state. Such a beautiful sky, day or night, but especially at night looking up at the Milky Way.

I'd also like to welcome all those people who saw a full moon for the first time.
