Lunar Supernova

Yep... it was cold enough at Silver Falls saturday night for a moon halo to form. Exposure and contrast boosts brought this common sight to a more explosive appearance.

    I just parked here for the proximity to areas that MIGHT have fall color and didn't expect to be shooting the falls. Not much color happening here yet but it was really cold and the campground was almost full??

    Wow, I haven't seen anything like this since I left North Dakota! We used to call these "moon dogs". Marvelous shot!

    so I just picked up the latest issue of National Geographic and they ave about 5 shots of the Milky way just like what you do.....I think we need to slip them some of your shots for the cover!!!!

    A 70/30 in your favor when you find conduit to for NG submissions!

    I think you would have a much better chance when they showcase the CRG with your WF pics.... no contest! Hey... Orinid meteor shower peaks between 1-3 AM. Got clear skies in BG????

    It would be interesting to see what the astrometry solver does with this one. I pointed out Taurus and the Pleiades in a note. This is another Astronomy Picture of the Day in the making. Great!

    Hello, this is the blind astrometry solver. Your results are:
    I'm sorry to say that I couldn't solve your system. However there is some good news! Someone should be around soon to solve your image by applying a few tweaks. We'll let you know how that goes.
