When I walked out of my building yesterday, I was greeted with this stunning view. Happily my iPod camera did a good job of capturing the color.
One of the things I love doing is photographing astronomical events. In 2012, we had two neat ones a few weeks apart: a partial solar eclipse and a transit of Venus. I chose a good spot with a clear view to the horizon for my pictures and went out the night before the transit of Venus to take some test shots. I’m particularly fond of this one.
