Anyone see the sky show last night?

Post by Carl D on December 1st 2008, 11:27 pm

Here's what I managed to get last night. Unfortunately, my digital camera isn't too good with sky shots - even on maximum zoom.



Here's the same thing with Stellarium, at exactly the same time as I took that picture (9:22PM last night):

Zoom in a bit:

Looked a lot better in real life, of course. cool

Venus and Jupiter will be in almost the same places as last night but the Moon will be further away from them and higher in the sky.

It was raining here but we need the rain so badly I won't gripe. Or reservoir (Lake Hartwell) is down 21 1/2 FT from full pool. We may only have 300 days of water left if we don't get appreciable rain fall.

Bill, when Barb told you that you could really drain that lake using a teaspoon, she WAS kidding...

I hope you knew that, I hope...... Dear God, I hope Very Happy

A 75 mile long lake emptied with a teaspoon?
