Comet PanSTARRS 19 March 2013

Submitted by: Beth Katz at Wed Mar 20 01:43:01 2013 UTC

Comet PanSTARRS "seen" from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with an 8 second exposure (my camera's max). We couldn't see it with 20x80 binoculars, but we weren't precisely sure where it was. It was windy, so this isn't a great photo for the trees. Copyright (c) 2013 Beth Katz, katz@cs.millersville.edu. ........... Note about the image gallery display on the front page.

Planets before dawn - 19 December 2012

Submitted by: Beth Katz at Wed Dec 19 12:56:01 2012 UTC

I really wish we had some aurora photos here. :-( Mercury is low in the orange glow this morning just above the lower left tree branch. Venus bright. Saturn up in the clouds. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Copyright (c) 2012 Beth Katz, katz@cs.millersville.edu.

Unexpectedly caught two interlopers from Libra in the photo although it's the planets that are wandering past the stars. Starting lower left. Mercury low. Bright Venus. Then the two from Libra sort of sideways (one above Venus; one in treetop). Saturn. Spica - α Virginis. The one in the tree is α Librae - Zubenelgenubi. The one above Venus is β Librae - Zubeneschamali. Photo taken 14 December 2012 from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Copyright (c) 2012 Beth Katz, katz@cs.millersville.edu.

On December 11, 2012, the Moon was part of the scene from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Again we have Mercury at lower left. Brighter Venus is near the Moon. Dim Saturn is above the tree in the clouds. Too many clouds Dec 10 and Dec 12 for comparison photos. Copyright (c) 2012 Beth Katz, katz@cs.millersville.edu.

Planets before dawn - 3 December 2012

Submitted by: Beth Katz at Tue Dec 4 13:34:01 2012 UTC

Note how the planets change position over the course of a few days. No wonder the ancients called them wanderers. Mercury at lower left, bright Venus, dimmer Saturn, and finally star Spica at upper right. From Lancaster County, Pennsylvania about 6:15am 3 December 2012.

Planets before dawn - 30 November 2012

Submitted by: Beth Katz at Fri Nov 30 12:44:01 2012 UTC

Previous photo was taken dawn November 29 (not 27). This one before dawn November 30 shows Mercury at lower left, then bright Venus, and fainter Saturn. This rearrangement continues for the next few days before dawn and is visible worldwide. From Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Copyright (c) 2012 Beth Katz, katz@cs.millersville.edu.

Planets before dawn - 27 November 2012

Submitted by: Beth Katz at Thu Nov 29 15:30:01 2012 UTC

Mercury is nestled in the branches near center while bright Venus is higher. Saturn is about 1 o'clock above Venus. The star Spica is high upper right. Planets are seeming to rearrange this week but will not appear lined up like ornaments adorning the Egyptian pyramids. Photo 6:20 am EST on 27 November 2012 from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. 1 second exposure. ISO 400. Nikon Coolpix 4500. Some retouching to remove camera's bad pixels.

Northern Lights Thanksgiving Substorm

Submitted by: Dave Chapman at Wed Oct 17 14:24:01 2012 UTC

lays seen in years. The amount of substorming with it was the best Brian Ch apman and I had experienced since November 10, 2004. We are in an area th at people don't think we get to see the northern lights but through careful studying we have been able to get over 50+ displays in the past years. Fro m 2 minute long substorms to all night displays.

Venus Transit Anchorage, Alaska

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Fri Jun 15 06:59:01 2012 UTC



Unfortunately, I was delayed in Anchorage, away from my larger equipment during the recent Venus transit. Fortunately, I was able to purchase the last #10 welding filter in town. (Between the recent eclipse and the transit there wasn't a proper #14 to be found.) Although the #10 was not sufficient for visual observations, it sufficed for imaging with the cheapo digital camera that I had with me. It was also fortunate that the sky was clear on this momentous occasion... So, Here is what I was able to get... maybe I'll have better equipment for the next one!

Venus Transit - 5 June 2012 - reflected pinhole

Submitted by: Beth Katz at Wed Jun 6 21:08:01 2012 UTC

Venus transit on 5 June 2012 about 19:19 EDT from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I used Hugh Hunt's reflected pinhole projection approach (http://www2.eng.cam.ac.uk/~hemh/transit.htm) which I did not practice enough to get a good hole size for the width of my house. The sunlight also was coming through a window and screen. So it's blurry. I have extra dim sun images because I had three hole punches in the card I taped to the mirror. Then I took the photo with my iPhone. Did other regulars here get pictures? I used "venus transit" as my category keyword. Copyright (c) 2012 Beth Katz, katz@cs.millersville.edu.

The Spirit Dance

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Wed Mar 28 21:03:01 2012 UTC

Here is another overhead crowning aurora from the intense auroral display on the evening of March 8, 2012. The aurora was at the magnetic zenith for less than two minutes as it swung southward over Homer, Alaska. I captured this image using a 6x7 cm medium-format camera with a 38mm wide-angle lens and Kodak E100G film. Copyright (c) Dennis C.

Electric Angels

On the night of March 8-9, 2012, we saw some of the most intense auroral displays of recent memory. This is one of just a couple images of a brief but intense overhead crowning observed as the aurora surged southward over Homer, Alaska. I used a 6x7 medium format camera with a 38mm wide-angle lens anf Kodak E100G film to capture the moment. This crowning was so bright that it didn't even notice that there was a full moon!
