|Click on the photo to enlarge it, because you're not going to see it otherwise. There are only two celestial objects visible in this frame: the slivery waxing crescent moon to the right, and a teeny tiny smudge to the far left of the moon at about ten o'clock. I was only able to detect the latter object after returning home to process these photos, which explains why this artistic composition is just plain bad: I didn't quite know what I was aiming for.|
Retention ponds looking west across West Walker toward the Cypress Pointe intersection.
|Here is close-up of Teeny Tiny Smudge. In terms of quality, it starts to remind you of my crummy great horned owl cell phone pics, doesn't it? It's a great ball of ice hurtling through the solar system, but I'd need a much better photo op to do it justice.|
Oh well. The hubster tells me that Comet Ison is supposed to be a more impressive viewing op come this December. Until then, I think I'll stick to ogling Orion which, by the way, is directly overhead. You can't miss it.
