5 moon Photos

For those who didn't wake up early last week, here are some pictures of the moon and some with a planet and a star, taken at the time of the eclipse.  I enjoyed the bouncing out of bed five times during the night.  I'm pleased with the camera's ability to make a pretty sharp image with exposures of one or two seconds, even in the hand-held way I used.  I'm glad we live in a dark place, with only a few lights to dodge.  I hope we'll adopt a dark skies policy for our town and the area around it.
