Conjunction

Tonight the moon is 98% full. Close by are Saturn and Jupiter. And ideal photo opportunity you might say but there were clouds and aerosols so I did not get a hard classical astro-photograph but a dreamy, ephemeral image. I used a little point and shoot camera and it exceeded my expectations.

The Moon and Venus were extremely close on 19 June, 2020 and I was lucky to capture some images.

Lunar Eclipse 2019

Early in 2019 Cape Town was blessed with a Lunar Eclipse. The only problem was that it happened around sunrise so we never saw totality. But I did get some nice shots. Even a couple of artistic shots.

Starting at 5:30 in the morning, I got there at 4:30 expecting to be crowded out. I could easily have scored and extra hour in bed. There was only one other photographer.

Some artistic shots.
