Re: Comet C/2012 K1 PANSTARRS

I was able to view (just barely) PANSTARRS w/ my 8" scope from Yorktown, even with the Full Moon. Thanks for the suggestion. Hope to check it out again along with Jacques next new moon. Puppis is too low at my house and it is also made more difficult to see by the air force base sky glow.

Puppis was behind a tree for me last night but no doubt both should be visible even from light-polluted skies with a moderate size telescope. C/2012 K1 PANSTARRS was easily visible from my driveway in Virginia Beach with the nearly full moon just rising. I can't wait to see them in a dark sky when the moon gets out of the way.

Um, Kent, the comet I mentioned was C/2014 E2 Jacques, a new one in Puppis at mag 9.8.  Sky Tools says Jacques is larger (6.3’) than C/2012 K1 PANSTARRS (2.4’ at mag 9.5), so Jacques will probably be a bit less obvious (but it’s getting brighter), however should still be easy.  In a few nights when the moon gets out of the way, both comets should be very nice at about 9 PM, but in nearly opposite azimuth directions.

This is an easy comet. It's quite easy in my 14" from Va Beach skies even with the full moon up. Look high in Bootes for the 9.8 magnitude comet. Thanks Roy Differient for alerting me to it. Kent Blackwell

Re: More lunar eclipse [1 Attachment]

Ah, too bad, George. You were just a bit too late. My pictures are time posted at 02:59:56, 03:01:09 , 03:01:03 and finally 03:13:05 AM EDT. There were other clearings as well but Kent was so nervous he was fumbling around. With all the passing clouds I felt as if I was trying to view and photograph a SOLAR eclipse where every precious second counts! In the end, it was glorious. Maybe those precious moments of clear skies made it even more exciting.

It would be rude to use republish images without express permission. Works of art, which include photographs or digital images, are by default copyrighted by the owner, even if not expressed.

I for one have taken many images, and many gave been used in newsletters and presentations we give to the public.

I have no problem providing images for non commercial use. However, remember if one displays an image on a site that is displaying advertising, that is probably NOT considered non commercial.

Just my 2cents worth.

Re: More lunar eclipse [1 Attachment]

I set my alarm for 0145 to catch the start of the lunar eclipse.  I went outside and could see -- NOTHING!  Nothing but clouds.  I went back to bed, intending to reset the alarm for 0300, but in my sleepiness, I forgot, and didn't wake up until the bedroom was flooded with daylight.  

I'm glad some folks got to see it (Ted, Jim, Kent, et. al.)  Nice photo you posted, Ted.

[Attachment(s) from Ted Forte included below]
The attached photo from Paul Dybvig (2 sec exposure F4.5 on the 14" Mak-Newt with the FLI camera ) is perhaps the closest approximation I’ve seen so far to what totality appeared like to the naked eye. 
 
Discussing the eclipse this morning I had a revelation.  This was the first lunar eclipse I have ever observed from a dark sky.  Every single other eclipse has been viewed from within a city ( far too many of them from hotel parking lots) and that is perhaps why I was so impressed with how dark the sky was during totality.  I wish I had thought to take an SQM reading. 
 
The other thing that was unique for me was that, discounting my first lunar eclipse that I saw as a young boy stealing a look from my bedroom window, this was the first eclipse I’ve ever viewed alone with absolutely no distractions.   It was quite a remarkable experience actually.

Sorry Kayce but I hate Facebook and most other social media. The yahoo group is a necessary evil.

WOW.. what a very cool lunar eclipse, very beautiful! My daughter and I could hear the local Indians beating on drums all evening during the eclipse, it was such a surreal experience!! We had a few hotel guest wander out to see what we were doing and shared the sight through my short tube 80.  That generated more excitement than the monster raccoons hanging around!  What was really cool is when the moon finally got into the shadow all of the stars came out.  We could see the moon against a field of stars in the EP.

Kayce...I suppose I should have specified that the link I sent (for  the lunar eclipse) was to a web site other than my own. My mediocre image gallery is at wd4sel.com and contains no images of the eclipse of 4/15/2014...and is free for the taking...
 
BTW, I saw the eclipse last night from thru a window at 3:15am for a brief parting of the clouds...very brief!

Anything I post on a Yahoo group I consider to be public domain. I have no problem if it gets forwarded or reposted.  None of the pictures I provided are mine – the photographers were identified in my posts.  The images were posted on another Yahoo group.  I wouldn’t want any of the pictures to get inaccurately attributed.
