Beautiful Mucho, Edge.

To me nothing does the moon justice. Sunsets are much easier to capture. Their glory exuberant.

The moons beauty is much harder to photograph. It's illusive. Almost like it won't give the complete glory of its loveliness away to just any one.

Don't know if that makes sense, but it's always how I feel when I try and capture the moon and night sky to keep in my heart and soul.

You said it well Edge, hard to do it justice...........

I taught each of my kids to howl at the full moon when they were about 1 year old. Still catch them doing it from time to time (they are in their 20s now). Always glad to see that you are a positive influence on your kids.

One of the best things about the full moon is night hiking without a flashlight. My boy Scout troop used to schedule all their backpacking trips around the full moon so we could hike in on Friday nights.

What is it about the mystery orb that draws? The fullness of the moon paints beauty in the night sky and gives us pause, allowing one to appreciate the vast glory of our universe. And if we listen carefully, it speaks to our lives. A reminder to let go of the rubble of things and embrace the creation and those around us.

Mouse, I was at the opening night in Orange County.

Great to look at and fun to play under, but more and more it means those ~5 days when I'm not getting any sleep. Especially in winter when the light is banging around off all that white. It's definitely a love-hate relationship for me.

...There I walked, and there I raged;
The spiritual savage caged
Within my skeleton, raged afresh
To feel, behind a carnal mesh,
The clean bones crying in the flesh.

I could pull the big time thick cotton ones over them, but ya know I think, like you perhaps, I love being connected with the outside, and freedom.

Green cheese simply means young cheese, by the way. It can be a new moon, see? Or it can be the old moon, too.

I was waiting over an hour for the moon to lower itself into the frame.

I was hoping it would center itself right behind Jack's sign, creating a poor man's eclipse, but it was a little off.

It seems there was a thick layer of dust lower down on the horizon from the windy conditions the last few days.

Tonight is technically the full moon, but who knows what the sky will be like, so here you are.

In Merced, at 5:07 a.m. the moon was just barely above the western horizon yesterday morning; about 5:57 the sun crept over the Sierra Nevada.

Do the math right and take a shot of the moonset AND the sunrise from your own location.

On my Canon I can choose the light source like fluorescent light or shade or cloudy day or full sun, etc.
Moon shots need "available light" source.
But it's fun to use the "custom" source.
Which means I don't know what I'm doing
and my learning curve's still at the "unpredictable outcome" stage!

In the Moment: Michael Frye's Landscape Photography Blog
This Sunday’s Lunar Eclipse


2015-09-22 18:29:15-04

Lunar eclipse sequence, April 14th and 15th, 2014, Trona Pinnacles, CA, USA
We’re going to get another chance to photograph a lunar eclipse this Sunday evening in North America and South America (or early Monday morning in Europe and Africa).
This eclipse also coincides with the moon’s perigee, meaning that the moon will be at its closest point to the earth during its orbit, and will look bigger than usual. The media is going to make a big deal about this “supermoon,” but the moon will only look seven percent larger than average, a difference that won’t be readily apparent to the naked eye, much less in photographs.
However, every total lunar eclipse is special – a spectacular event to view and photograph. And unlike the last one in April, this one will feature a long total eclipse phase.
On the west coast the moon will already be partially eclipsed when it rises at sunset. Here in Mariposa, for example, the partial eclipse starts at 6:07 p.m., but the moon won’t rise until 6:45 p.m. (assuming a level horizon). The sun will set right after that, at 6:49 p.m., and the total eclipse then begins at 7:11 p.m.
Although we won’t be able to see the entire eclipse sequence here on the west coast, the fully-eclipsed moon will be low in the sky to the east at dusk, making it easy to juxtapose the moon with foreground objects. As you move further east, more of the eclipse will become visible. Viewers in eastern Utah can see the whole eclipse sequence, though barely, as the partial eclipse will begin just after the moon rises (and right after sunset). On the east coast the entire sequence will be visible, and occur well after sunset (though high above the horizon).
This page gives a good overview of where and when the eclipse will be visible (though you can ignore the information about the “penumbral” phase of the eclipse, as this phase is hardly apparent to the naked eye, much less in a photograph).
I made the image below on September 26th, 1996 in Yosemite. That eclipse was remarkably similar to the one coming up this Sunday – the same time of year, visible in the same parts of the world, with almost identical timing for the phases of the eclipse. By the time the moon rose above the ridge that year it was fully eclipsed, then it climbed diagonally up and to the right as it moved from fully eclipsed to completely full. The moon’s path this Sunday will be nearly identical, so this image might help you visualize that path. Things will vary a bit depending on your location, but from anywhere in the western continental U.S. the moon will rise in the east either fully eclipsed, partially eclipsed, or just prior to the beginning of the partial eclipse, and then move diagonally up and to the right.

Lunar eclipse sequence, September 26, 1996, Yosemite NP, CA, USA


Of course the moon will take a similar path on the east coast too, but the eclipse won’t begin until the moon is higher up along that diagonal. From Richmond, Virginia, for example, the moon will be 25 degrees above the horizon when the partial eclipse starts at 9:07 EDT (I think that would be near the top of the tree in this photograph). The moon will still be rising along a steep diagonal at that point, but its trajectory will flatten out toward the end of the eclipse, nearing the top of its arc as the partial eclipse ends.
For precise guidance about the moon’s position in relation to the landscape, I recommend consulting PhotoPills or The Photographer’s Ephemeris.
Here’s the timing for this Sunday’s eclipse:
U1 (Partial eclipse begins):
1:07 UT (Universal Time), Sept. 28
9:07 p.m. EDT, Sept. 27
6:07 p.m. PDT, Sept. 27
U2 (Total eclipse begins):
2:11 UT, Sept. 28
10:11 p.m. EDT, Sept. 27
7:11 p.m. PDT, Sept. 27
U3 (Total eclipse ends):
3:23 UT, Sept. 28
11:23 p.m. EDT, Sept. 27
8:23 p.m. PDT, Sept. 27
U4 (Partial eclipse ends):
4:27 UT, Sept. 28
12:27 p.m. EDT, Sept. 28
9:27 p.m. PDT, Sept 27
Note that the total eclipse will last over an hour! So although it will be dusk on the west coast when the total eclipse begins, skies will be completely dark by the time it ends.
So how do you photograph an eclipse? Here’s a breakdown of the equipment, techniques, and strategies for capturing a lunar eclipse. (Versions of this have appeared before on the Borrowlenses blog, and in Lance Keimig’s revised edition of his excellent book, Night Photography and Light Painting: Finding Your Way in the Dark).
Equipment
DSLR or mirrorless camera with full manual exposure control. Test your mirrorless camera first to make sure you can focus and compose in the dark with the electronic viewfinder (see “Focusing” below).
At least two fully charged camera batteries
Sturdy tripod
Interval timer, or cable release/remote with a watch
Flashlight or headlamp
Focusing
Since most modern lenses focus past infinity, you can’t just crank the focusing ring all the way to the end and expect to get sharp images. The most accurate way to focus in the dark is to use live view, zoom in on the moon, and focus manually. It may help to temporarily crank up the ISO, manually set a long exposure, and open up the aperture. Autofocusing on the moon should also work if the moon is bright enough (like before the total eclipse begins) – but be sure to then turn autofocus off so that the camera doesn’t accidentally refocus on something else when you press the shutter.
Exposure
When the partial eclipse begins the moon will become a smaller and smaller crescent as the earth’s shadow seems to take a bite out of the moon. During the total eclipse the moon will look much dimmer, and turn orange or even red-orange in color. Just after the total eclipse the moon will return to a slender crescent and then get larger and larger, until the eclipse ends and the moon becomes completely full again. (You may only be able to see part of this sequence, depending on your location and the timing of the eclipse.)
Light meters are useless for getting good exposures of the moon, because even a one-degree spot meter can’t read just the moon, but will also include some of the surrounding dark sky. So here are some suggestions based on past experience, including making the accompanying photographs. You’ll need to use manual-exposure mode, and check your camera’s highlight alert (the blinkies) to make sure you’re not overexposing the moon:
Full moon, or moon more than half visible: 1/60 sec. at f/11, 200 ISO
Half to one-quarter of the moon visible: 1/30 sec. at f/11, 200 ISO
Less than one-quarter of the moon visible: 1/15 sec. at f/11, 200 ISO
Just the edge of the moon lit: 1 sec. at f/11, 200 ISO
Fully eclipsed at the beginning and end of totality: 8 sec. at f/11, 800 ISO
Fully eclipsed, deepest totality: 8 sec. at f/11, 1600 ISO
Of course you can use any equivalent shutter speed/aperture/ISO combination to get the same exposure. If you need more depth of field (if you’re including something in the foreground, for example) you could use f/16 instead of f/11, and either double the ISO or the length of the exposure. However, you can’t make the exposures too long, otherwise the moon will move and blur. You can get away with eight or maybe even fifteen seconds with a wide-angle lens, but with telephoto lenses you need to use much shorter shutter speeds. To find the maximum exposure time for your lens before movement appears, divide the focal length into 400. So 400 ÷ 25mm = 16 seconds, or 400 ÷ 100mm = 4 seconds. Bracketing exposures is a good idea.
Eclipse Strategies
The simplest way to photograph a lunar eclipse is to take a long lens and zoom in on the moon. If you photograph a sequence of the moon during different phases of the eclipse you can use Photoshop to assemble your images into a montage.
A more evocative approach – but a more complicated one – is to capture the eclipse sequence with a foreground, as I did in the accompanying photograph of the Trona Pinnacles. This means making a series of exposures for the moon, plus at least one frame to add some ambient light to the sky, and possibly another frame (or frames) to light-paint something in the foreground. You can then blend these different images together in Photoshop.
You’ll first need to figure out the exact path the moon will take so you can compose your photograph accordingly. The apps I mentioned above, PhotoPills and The Photographer’s Ephemeris, are invaluable for this.
Once you’ve composed, make sure your tripod is solidly planted and locked tightly. You’ll want to focus on the foreground, not the moon, and use a small enough aperture to get both the foreground and the moon in focus. (A bright flashlight and live view are helpful for focusing on the foreground.)
Then make a series of exposures to capture the eclipse sequence. In the Trona Pinnacles photograph the interval was ten minutes between each moon capture, but you could make it fifteen or twenty minutes if you want to space the moons farther apart in the frame (the one from Yosemite used fifteen-minute intervals). Just make sure you keep the interval the same throughout the sequence. You can use an interval timer for this, or just use a watch and trip the shutter manually (using a remote or cable release, of course). You’ll need to adjust the exposure times (and possibly the aperture or ISO as well) as the moon’s brightness changes during the eclipse.
You’ll also want to capture a frame for ambient light that you can blend in with the eclipse sequence. This could be an exposure of the moonlit landscape made before or after the eclipse (make sure the moon is out of the frame, and shade the lens to prevent flare). It could also be an image of the dawn or dusk sky. But my favorite way of adding some ambient light is to make an exposure of the stars when the moon is fully eclipsed. Do this in between taking frames of the moon for your sequence. To show lots of stars you’ll need a wide aperture and high ISO; my standard exposure for capturing pinpoint stars with a wide-angle lens and dark skies is 15 or 20 seconds at f/2.8, 6400 ISO, but this can vary depending on the amount of light pollution. Even though though the moon will be fully eclipsed, it’s still a lot brighter than the stars, which means it will look like a big, overexposed blob, so you’ll need to clone out the moon from this frame before blending it with the other images in the sequence.
To make things more interesting – and more complicated – you can light-paint something in the foreground. In the Trona Pinnacles photograph I used a tungsten-balanced, battery-powered spotlight to light the pinnacles, but for other eclipse sequences I’ve used flash or smaller flashlights, depending on the situation and the size of the objects being lit. Light-painting techniques are too complex to describe in detail here, but for an eclipse sequence like this I’d recommend making separate frames for each object you’re lighting (in between exposures for the moon), so you can later adjust the exposure for each frame independently.
Assembling a Sequence
For a sequence, the final step is to assemble the images in Photoshop. From Lightroom you can select the images and choose Photo > Edit In > Open as Layers in Photoshop, and Photoshop will stack the images into one document as separate layers. Or you can do this by hand in Photoshop by using the Move tool to drag one image on top of another; just make sure you hold down the shift key while dragging so that the images align properly.
Then change the blending mode of every layer except the bottom one to Lighten. This makes light areas override dark areas, so the moon from one frame will override dark sky from another frame. As you do this you’ll see all the moons magically appear and complete your sequence. If you light-painted a foreground object, that too will appear when you change the blending mode for that layer. You can also add a layer mask to any layer, and paint with black on the mask to hide a part of that layer. And if you used a telephoto lens to capture the whole eclipse sequence, you can use the Move tool to drag each layer around and arrange the moons on your canvas.
After this Sunday there won’t be another chance to photograph a total lunar eclipse in North America until 2018. No pressure there. Good luck, and I look forward to seeing everyone’s photos!

THE MOON AND THE SUN
Barry Pietrantonio

The Sun shines,
the fog blinds,
together they make,
a rainbow in the sky.

The Moon stares,
into a lake,
and wonders why,
he's a big mistake.

Why can't he be the Sun,
and light up the day.
Why can't he be the one,
to make the bad go away.

Why can't he be the light,
that brightens everyones day.
Instead he sits in the night,
wishing the Sun would go away.

The Moon glows,
the stars show,
a pattern of love,
that lights the Earth below.

To himself,
the Sun confides,
that he wishes,
he controlled the tides.

Why can't he be the Moon,
and turn darkness into light.
Why can't he be the one,
to light up the great night.

Why can't he have the grace,
of being with the stars.
Instead he sits up in space,
wishing he could take his place.

But what they both don't know is,
they need each other.
What they both don't know is,
that they are brothers.

We live in jealousy,
envying each other.
Please, just be thankful,
and happy for others.

The Sun needs the Moon,
to keep the night lit bright.
The Moon needs the Sun,
to produce his shining light.

The Sun needs the Moon,
and the Moon needs the Sun.
If they work together,
they can be one.

If they work together,
they can be one.
if they work together,
they will be one.

If we work together,
we could be one.
If we work together,
we will be one.

Here are some words I wrote for a song about the Moon and the Earth.
It's about time and gravity.

A simple D C B B flat dropdown.







Well the Moon came down to Earth one dark and stormy Friday

And the Earth, he knew just what to say.

He said, "Baby don't you know, its our destiny , we were meant to be

So why don't you come along with me"


And he said

" I know that someday I can fly away with you

Walking along on a country road, with nothing much to do

And I can sing my song for you and try to make me smile,,

For me,, oh baby can't you see"




And so the Moon she takes a spin around the planet Earth

And she decides that she likes the things that she can see

So she says to the Earth "Its you and me forever

You got a hold on me and I can never get away"



And she says

" I know that someday I can fly away with you

Walking along on a country road with nothing much to do

And I can sing my song for you, and try to make you smile

For me,, oh baby can't you see"









Its many years now, the time has come

The final countdown has begun

And so the Earth and the Moon they finally come together

And so the Earth and the Moon they finally are one


And they say

" I knew that some day I could fly away with you

Walking along on a country road, with nothing much to do

And I can sing my song for you, and try to make me smile

For me,,,

Oh baby,, can't you see,,

real, or the closest thing to it given this context, remains elusive ...

a full accounting, the odyssey of a single photon from the sun to your satisfied mind,
passes through so many layers of interpretation along the way, at least in this electronic medium,
that a little charity granted to the editor of an image (read photoshopper) seems reasonable. editorial decisions
were made by manipulative technologists starting with the specifics of the coating on the front lense.

your reaction however, deserves absolute respect, it being the last bastion of certitude.
refer to "what is mind" for further discussion and likely rebuttal

Topic Author's Original Post - Apr 21, 2016 - 01:56pm PT
I just finished reading Entering Space, by visionary Astronautical Engineer, Robert Zubrin. Zubrin is the founder and president of the Mars Society, a group dedicated to promoting the study of and travel to Mars. The Society was established in the early 1990s during a meeting on the University of Colorado, Boulder Campus. In the flow of the book, the energy requirements of space travel were pointed out brilliantly, and energy requirements to accomplish some of the tasks outlined are--Astronomical. Chemical Propulsion, as being demonstrated by repetitive launches of communication and surveillance satellites into Low Earth Orbit ,(LEO), is technology developed in the 1960s and brought to a highly efficient state today. This technology is also adequate for a return to the Moon, and also for travel to Mars. Zubrin points out, however, the massive energy requirements required for exploration of the Outer Solar System beyond Mars and the Asteroid belt. Enter the requirements of both Nuclear Fission powered rocket, and introducing Fusion power. In the course of discussing the potential of Fusion power, the various reactions were presented, and the "standard" reaction of Deuterium and Tritium, although cleaner than Uranium-based systems w/r to production of hazardous wastes, releases high energy Neutrons capable of rendering structures radioactive and also generating X-rays. Enter the superb Deuterium-Helium-3 reaction! Helium 3 is an isotope of Helium containing 2 Protons, but only a single Neutron, in contrast to "ordinary" Helium containing 2 Protons and 2 Neutrons. The Fusion reaction postulated between one molecule of Deuterium and a molecule of Helium-3 yields non-radioactive Helium-4, and liberates a single Proton, in an Aneutronic fusion reaction, along with the liberation of 18.354 MeV. The problem in running such a clean reaction to produce almost limitless electrical energy, is the almost total absence of any available He-3 on Earth, not to mention the large quantity of Deuterium.

It has been postulated that the surface of the Moon is rich in He-3 from billions of years of bombardment of the surface by the Solar Wind, rich in He-3. Also, the He-3 is thought to be in the regolith to the depth of several meters, and could be obtained by calcining the soil at 600 degrees C to release the substance, compress and liquefy for transport to Earth for energy production. A second source of information suggested that mining a million tons of lunar soil a year could result in a single shipment of 20 metric Tonnes of He-3 to Earth, capable of producing 100% of the energy requirements of the United States for a year. By the way, 20 metric Tonnes would comprise a nice load for the now-retired Space Shuttle!

I'm certain few here are aware of this profound information. The availability of almost limitless power with zero pollution, no release of greenhouse gasses, and no radioactivity! What's not to like? Here is a goal worthy of NASA, private industry, or all mankind!

On the other hand, other countries are taking this very seriously: China and Russia, in particular. The Chinese have stated they will visit the Moon by the end of 2017 and several more robotic rovers are planned as advance missions. I'm sure the Oil Sheiks will oppose such activity, but we need to wean ourselves from the technologies of the past and fully embrace the future.

The second issue, beyond mining Helium-3, is Deuterium. It is available in a much higher abundance on Mars, roughly 6X more than on Earth.

Given the growing population of our planet, and the corresponding competition for scarce resources, salvation of our planet seems to be inexorably linked to the exploration and exploitation of other resources within mankind's grasp--or at this point--reach.

Full Moons may become a nightmare with all that work going on up there. Daniel Boone once said, "If I can see smoke from another cabin it's time for me to move on."

But where to go?????

What is the Strawberry Moon?

It is a full moon, which occurs in June, named by early Native American tribes. It is a full moon like any other, but marks the beginning of the strawberry season. The two events coincide once every 70 years.

It would be so cool to have been at Lovers Leap this morning, shooting
the Strawberry Moon over Strawberry.

Still, even if I'd know about this, I could have predicted that I would be eslewhere. (I MIGHT be here Inn another seventy, but so would donini.)

Back home once again, walking in the dark through the citrus and avocado groves of my rural community in So Cal. So, so far removed from the 4 months I just lived and loved at Tioga Pass.

But it doesn't matter where I walk, 1600 feet or 10,000 feet, the moon is up there and ready to give birth to fullness. My camera cannot even begin to do justice to this night or the universe I would so love to capture. But that doesn't matter either. It's there, imprinted forever in my heart and mind.

Once I was sure I wasn't seeing things, I turned to check the light source, and the full moon was peeking out from the clouds, having just risen over the hills. Breathtaking.

If you are in the Valley tomorrow you might have a chance to get the Moon over Half Dome... from the Ahwahnee Meadow between 5:00pm and 5:15pm PST based on my calculations and the position of the Moon tonight.

I might make the trip, the clouds seem to be making a delayed appearance. But even without clouds, the November atmosphere tends to be very moist and that can obscure the Moon rise until it is very high above Half Dome.

Sunset is around 5:00pm PST, so the scene should still be lit.

so I noticed that my prediction was off, the Moon rose in a different position. Comparing predictions to actual observation is what science is about, and it is often humbling to learn that you got it wrong, and getting it wrong is very usual.

Looking back at my calculation I saw that I read "semi-diamter" as "diameter" instead of "radius" and that caused me to incorrectly scale the webcam image. Taking that into account I get the "prediction"

Credit: Ed Hartouni

the dashed cross hair is the position at 4:51, which corresponds to my first sighting of the Moon on Half Dome's Southwest shoulder

Credit: Ed Hartouni

here is the "prediction" ontop of the image, the agreement is within about 1 lunar diameter, or about 0.542º which is not bad for this work... this might be accounted for by my displacement from the webcam, which was about 20m behind me and North, and up about 5m.

It would have been nice to have had the luck of patchy clouds in the scene and a clear view of the Moon, but it is what it is. If you aren't actually there you won't get that shot, luck or not.

Shot on the walk in front of my building at 4:20 a.m.

Yeah, I stood around till it got in the right place.

So I burned one and froze my tookus off lying on the sidewalk to focus and fiddle.

It's still just a full moon, no superiority, just happens to be up closer than normal.

BIG DEAL! See ya in 74 years and don't be a stranger.

(CNN)Patting yourself on the back for getting a killer photo of the supermoon? Well, Ben Gwynne can top that.

Like many of us, Gwynne was out last weekend to capture the moon in all its glory when he happened upon this amazing visual.


Credit: Ben Gwynne

It's called a moonbow.
As the name suggests, a moonbow is the same thing as a rainbow. Like a rainbow, it's formed when light is refracted from water droplets suspended in the atmosphere.
The difference, of course, is that the moon doesn't produce its own light. So it's light from the sun reflecting off the moon's surface, and refracting off water droplets in the air.

Cool!

magic Gnome - lots of melted rock o the moon. Is the gear in the moonlight still frozen?

Darwin, I like it as is.
(If the foreground is more than 100' away f5.6 may have enough depth of field to focus on the moon)

McHale, I have always been curious about the rebound peaks in craters of some large enough size.

Last Super Moon I went to JT, could've red a book in the moonlight.

They're saying tonight's Super Moon might block out the showing from the meteor showers.

Can't get out somewhere without the ambient lights of the City anyway.

Who's responsible ?

I've been watching the orb grow full the last three nights
it crosses the sky above my Plight ,
it sheds light on my neighbor's blight.
Where once I walked under the full moon
in those tic infested woods,
as a thing on the full moon,
No more !

It is in part them, but also Not them
nightmare bugs

The new owner ,
" the word no, means you must not cross"

He, a highschool science teacher but not just any one the AP one.
Advanced placement comes with the head of the department .

While I raged and field stripped the critter cam, a motion triggered hunting tool?
before I knew that he had some rights to buy , hung & post what is or was a protected wildlife wet lands area!?






Oh yeah ? I didn't bump this ! Just play'in SNEAKY, NO BUMP if I'd 'spected, it a been da mfm

I've been toiling over the response if drafts were still paper I'd of had a nice fire,
A cleansing by flames of lame words strung together as a stahl, a pause a break from the norm.
But nothing has been worthy
It's hard to follow Frost!

As by way of one passage I did like - it what's it, up there,

I'm sorta sans access to a drive to load or download
so too I'm blue
my camera holds some moon beams for sure. ..
