Tonight after sunset a thin crescent moon will pass 3° north of Jupiter, & Venus will be shining brightly above.

Just had two random Turkey's in the back yard. That was a fun surprise.

It's amazing that after waking up to this yesterday it still turned out to be a nice clear day. (foggy panorama)

I had no luck with my videos of Saturn, but I did get a decent image of Comet Garradd

most of the SDO images seem to have a face on them.

SOHO EIT 171. There's a face on the sun.

There's comet swan in lasco c3 to the lower left.

My Mom just called, she had to put down her yellow lab. Odie was a sweet dog, may he RIP.

Having issues collimating F/5 telescope. Any suggestions based on the attached pic? This is through Cheshire tube

Here's that image of the bass I caught.

Even the southern parts of NY have a chance to see the aurora if it is still strong tonight

Looks like the x-class flare distorted Lasco c3 a bit
