3/21/20 Lancaster County, Nebraska. The core of the Milky Way is apearing now above the horizon a couple hours before sunrise.

The 3 brightest stars in a group near the middle of the picture are (L-R) Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter. Jupiter is a little above and to the right of Mars.

Was down in Bryce the day or so after a full moon. Spent a few hours hiking around after it got dark.

There is a reason this is a regularly taken shot. The trail has this little outjut right at this spot that fits a tripod...

I was glad that my old Sony A6000 with the kit lens worked for a few images yesterday so I could capture the comet.
I can't wait to get my new camera on Wednesday because my A6000 is beyond good and evil after several years of excessive use and abuse.

Ooh! Very nice! What's your new camera going to be?

A couple of days ago I managed to get both clear weather and permission to abandon the family for the evening to see the comet.

Waiting for darkness, there is a 1-day old moon here. Can you find it low on the horizon?


I'll make it easy for you :)


Then darkness and comet time


A stack of 12 individual photos to drop the noise a bit


The whole time I was out there was a lot of lightning in the distant south. You could not see the actual lightning, but it was lighting up the clouds a lot. Once the comet dropped into the clouds, I pivoted to check out the Milky Way and the lightning. Bright star is Jupiter.
