Here it comes back . . .
You're lucky, Voni. We were totally socked in here. Cool shots.

Our forecast was for cloudy skies but I was encouraged by relatively light cloud cover late in the evening..... The high clouds provided a nice neutral density filter :)
....and then Mother Nature rewarded me for my patience when it was time for the main event!

"Real World" amateur images...
Nice conjunction from Tuesday March 1 this year of the crescent moon and Venus picture is a bit pixelated due to the conversion to a web friendly size but the raw image is really sharp gonna have to print this one!
Around this time of year, each morning and evening a huge flock of black birds will fly over our place and roost in the tree line just behind the houses across the street that back onto the creek/wildlife reserve and spend 10-15 minutes cawing and chattering up a storm, then they all fly off as if on cue. fun to watch and we can hear them even inside the house.
If you like Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon", you need to try the Easy Star All-Stars "Dub Side of the Moon". It's awesome.
Taken from my front yard a couple of years ago. Moon had just finished being eclipsed (could not see it from our location, Silver City NM).
