Out of this world…Pics

I posted a selection of my off-world photos on Facebook and thought I’d post here, too. After all, these pages could use a little color.

Most of the moon and solar photos were taken with a Nikon P900, a camera that is pure delight to use. I used a special filter for the solar shots to keep my camera, and my eye, from getting fried.

The eclipse photos were from the total eclipse in 2017 when I was living in St. Louis. Note that one points out a coronal ejection that was happening at the time of totality.

And the fuzzy orange photo is of Mars, taken with a fairly inexpensive telescope.
