Milky Way Photo Op

**We have a New Moon on September 25th this will give us a great Milky Way photo opportunity at a reasonable hour. The Milky Way becomes visible at 8:31 PM about 23 degrees above the horizon and sets at 11:20 PM. We’ll probably view this at the PI Pier.

Lunar Eclipse

**We have a Lunar Eclipse on November 9th the eclipse begins at 3:03 AM, the Moon enters the Umbra shadow at 5:17 AM and is full in the Penumbra from 5:17 until 6:42 AM. During this period the moon will be blood red, the best time to photo the Red Moon will be at 6:00 AM as it will be centered in the shadow. At 6:00 AM the moon will be 31 degrees above the horizon at 2800 azimuth. Caution Day Light will begin at 5:48 AM so don’t be late. Again, all we need is a clear sky.
The good news is you can photograph this in slippers and PJ’s if you have a clear view of the Western sky. I’ll be at the Wacha Waco Landing with cup of coffee..

Check it Out!!
