Delicate Arch Group

Last night our group hiked up to Delicate Arch to watch the Moon set and also shoot the Milky Way. This was our students classroom setting for the night. I'm not sure about you, but I think it's quite a great place to learn and make new friends. I can't complain either because this office has the best view of any I've worked in so far. Mike Berenson and I plan our locations for our students so that they are in the best positions in the best locations to capture the best images possible. We look at everything from sunrise to sunset, moonrise to moonset, new moon or full moon and then we time it accordingly.

In this shot from left to right, looking in the sky you have Mars on the far left, Dark horse nebula right above the arch, See the horse legs as it looks like it's standing up? Antares is just to the right of the arch. Moon and Jupiter are in conjunction as you will see the small dot below the moon on the left, that's Jupiter and Arcturus is on the right. The Moon and Jupiter are in Libra. If you look at the sky tonight about 8:30pm Mountain time you will see the moon between Antares and Jupiter as they form a triangle.
