Sunset Moonset on Walters Mountain + Venting Satellite

Post by Derek Klepp » Sun Aug 12, 2018 10:44 am

A very interesting afternoon especially finding the 1.6% Waxing Crescent in the glow of the set Sun. On the way home I noticed an odd object in the sky which turned out to be a Satellite. Hope you enjoy the pics.

These are all way cool shots Derek! Does the timing of the satellite correspond with the launch of the Parker probe?

Amazing Derek!! what luck to get the Parker probe :hamster: :hamster:

As for the other images, I am glad it is transit time again for the mountain, I always think it odd that the Sun sets backwards compared to all I have ever seen in my life. Certainly the most stunning images you have ever presented.

Fantastic series of images, Derek!

The earth's sattelite image is something special.

I always enjoy your pictures of our sun, sky and mather nature.

Thanks for sharing and, as always, looking for more!
