We were in standing room only down the right field line, but it was still lovely. #Royals #OpeningDay
On Thursday this was at 23cm. Luckily some of that melted over the weekend before we got another twenty overnight
View from the back door:
The #eclipse just as the sun set.
Eclipse detector being held by @DaphneBryan and Lee Decker.
The #eclipse as seen from our simple pinhole viewer.
My #Ashes set up. St George's Cross, cup of Earl Grey (unfortunately poor, no kettle in the hotel), @BBC_TMS on audio and Channel Nine video.
Stepped outside a couple of hours ago and was greeted by this sight of the moon and Venus.
It's rather good when it actually points at the target...
It's actually somewhat pretty, albeit in an 'oh my word, I think I may lose a toe' kind of way.
A clear indication that it is close to dawn, in this case about 3 hours.
And zoomed in near the south lunar pole. #Moonwatch
Zoomed in the camera near the terminator. Same telescope and eyepiece. #Moonwatch
The widest zoom on my camera, coupled with a 30cm Dobsonian and a 26mm eyepiece. #Moonwatch
My best effort at getting both the moon and Jupiter in the same frame. #Moonwatch
With a 9mm eyepiece, a couple of moons (I didn't look up which) are just /barely/ visible.
Used a 25cm dobsonian w/26mm lens for this.
Photo of the Moon through binoculars. Taken around 03.00 UTC on 31 May from the Kansas City, MO area.
Daylight photo of the moon-taken around 22.30 UTC from the Kansas City, MO area. #moonwatch
