Super Moon on the way!

Tomorrow night the moon will be full and it’s going to be a Super Moon.

Meaning it’s extra close to Earth, and will appear larger.

This photo is from last night, made with film shot through a telescope.

Discovery and the ISS

I was thrilled to watch Discovery and the ISS pass through the Big Dipper tonight!  This was the last mission for Discovery, so it was quite a thought provoking few moments to watch her glide through the sky. Nikon D70 on tripod.
