I still have to figure out the night sky capture, but this is a night shot of Bryce Canyon in the winter.
So beyond cool!!!It fits into the home section as well as the night shots. I decided to post it here.
These are images from home with the glow of the volcano eruption in the sky. At the moment we have skies that look like sunset afterglow the entire night. I'm less than ten miles away
the access road to my place
my favorite photo spot about half a mile away from my house
What time of night was it? If it is not close to sunrise or sunset it is probably not Venus due to that being an inner planet. Not too important but I could look it up in my star model Starry Night Pro if I knew the exact date and time. Juniper is prominent in our southern sky in the early night for most of us for much of the spring and summer.Not sure. I was thinking Venus which is very bright outside my back door in the western sky.

Anyone curious about planets this summer:Good one. Is that Jupe in the shot?
Share away, brother!Anyone curious about planets this summer:
Venus will be up in the early evenings very brightly. It has a smaller orbit so I'm not sure how long it will be easily beautiful. Venus never tracks far from the sun (being closer to the sun than us) so it is seen either around sunrise or sunset.
Jupiter is hanging out by the constellation Libra for the summer. The fairly bright star Spica (of the constellation Virgo) is due right of Jupiter. The star Zubenelgenubi is just below Jupiter right now which makes them a nice little pair in the early evening before more faint stars pop out. Right now it is in good evening mode and should stay that way for a couple months
Saturn is out by Sagitarius just to the left of the bulge of the Milky Way. You have to stay up a bit later to see it well right now but give it a couple months and it will be in prime evening mode.
Mars is then out following Saturn. It is out by the faint constellation Capricorn, so easier to look for the bright red dot halfway up between the horizon and zenith. With where Mars is it won't be well seen in the evenings until the fall. If you have to pee in the morning like I usually do it looks really bright with Saturn around 4-5am
Sorry I've just come off of a week astro guiding on a rafting trip so this info was pretty handy on the brain and I'm in share mode lol.
