The Sun and Moon Have Been At it Again

Last night marks the second week since the big eclipse event in Albuquerque.  That means that the moon moved to the opposite side of the playground and another eclipse happened, this time a partial of the full moon.

Reading about the event in a news story last night I prepped my equipment so everything would be ready at 4:30am when I was to crawl out of bed and see if there was anything worth shooting.

 

I was glad I was ready for the event, for when my wife pointed out that the sun was doing it's thing on the horizon all I had to do is walk out on the balcony and fire away.

 

On the 4th shot a chopper appeared and flew across the face of the sun in the next two frames.  The one that follows however is the best.

Promptly at 4:30 I crawled out of bed and carried the camera and tripod out once again.  I had been hopping to get the setting moon over Albuquerque but a thick layer of cloud was going to kill that idea.  There was a thin layer of cloud over the moon when I shot my series of photos so they do not have the sharp detail that are in my images from last month's Super Moon.

And there you have it, 4:30am photos of part two of the great solar events of May and June, 2012.
