Aurora 10-12-04

Submitted by: Lorie Giebel at Wed Oct 13 14:19:01 2004 UTC

Just when I stepped out at 9:15 pm CDT, it was already in progress with this nice high arc, but quickly quieted down to a large glow with some small beams. This was the most photographically worthwhile picture, although I took several more.

Nice little show, finally!

Proton Arc 7-11-05

Submitted by: Lorie at Tue Jul 12 12:19:01 2005 UTC

I believe this is a Proton Arc, although correct me if I'm wrong--loriek@direcway.com. It was visible right at zenith, going from east to west, for at least 1 1/2 hrs while I observed it. It brightened, at one point, which is when I realized it was not a lingering "contrail". This is shot with the orange of the setting crescent moon visible.

Taken at 5:44 a.m. CST using a 50mm f1.4 lens, 2.2, 5 seconds, Iso 400. This will be the closest the two planets get to each other as they will now start moving apart.

Venus & Jupiter 11-4-04

Submitted by: Lorie Giebel at Thu Nov 4 23:40:01 2004 UTC

Taken at 5:27 a.m. using 50mm f1.4 lens @ 2.2, 6 seconds, Iso 800. Lighting on foreground trees caused by a tungsten light which cast an orange light. The planets are creeping closer together. November 5th they will be 2/3 of a degree apart.

Taken 5:45 a.m. CDT, 70-200mm f2.8 lens set @200mm, 2.8, 4 seconds, Iso 400. A thin layer of haze in the air has created a bit of a corona around Venus.

Harvest Moon 9-28-04, one minute later

Submitted by: Lorie Giebel at Sat Oct 2 00:19:01 2004 UTC

The Harvest Moon taken at 7:10, just one minute later. The distortion on the edges of the moon still evident, but look at how much higher the moon has risen in just one minute! You really only have seconds and minutes to catch the moon on the horizon. You can literally see it move with each exposure. It really strikes me as amazing, since it hardly seems to move once it gets up a ways in the sky. This picture is taken using all the same settings of the 1st picture, but with a 4 second exposure, making for a darker picture.

Aurora 9-16-04

Submitted by: Lorie Giebel at Fri Sep 17 11:24:01 2004 UTC

This is the best I could come up with on this night. I had just missed a nice curtain at about 9:00, but couldn't get properly set up in time to capture it. By 10:00 pm there were no more features worth sitting up for.

Aurora 8-31-04 4:30 a.m.

Submitted by: Lorie Giebel at Tue Aug 31 16:20:01 2004 UTC

Couldn't resist waking up early to check and see if it was still here. Yes, but the light of the moon was still strong and the features somewhat dim, but still viewable to the naked eye for a short while.

Aurora 8-31-04

Submitted by: Lorie Giebel at Tue Aug 31 12:24:01 2004 UTC

This is the 1st pic taken this morning. A longer exposure to test the sky for green. About a 2 min exposure, as evidenced by the stars trailing. Also a satellite can be seen streaking through from the right top of picture. A foggy start to the aurora viewing morning. 20mm lens, 2 min. Iso 200.

First shot in a line of many nice ones taken early on, about 9:15 pm and lasted decently until the light of the moon and the aurora dimming sent me home around 10:45 or so. 20mm, Iso 200, about 20-25 sec.
