Over Our Heads
It’s an amazing world we live in! Sometimes, as a reminder, it’s good to take a peek at just what’s out there in the ‘Grand Design’ that is happening over our heads…!
These sky images were taken this morning with a 600mm lens…and of course one wide-angle of the aurora!
Planet Jupiter shows off the 4 largest of its 67 confirmed moons.
Though the moons are barely visible with good binoculars, a long telephoto lens or telescope is best!
The full moon will occur this coming morning (Feb 4) at 1:29 am @ a 99.7% brightness!
Comet Lovejoy is visible with binoculars as a glowing “fuzz-ball” but isn’t expected to form a long tail at this point in its journey.
…And of course, closer to Earth, small auroral displays above the frigid & foggy, moonlit mountains and valleys.
