Hunting The Hunter’s Moon

At dusk looking south with Venus overhead.

Jupiter only had two moons tonight. The bazooka is such a blast as it got a tiny Saturn with its rings.

  1. This evening we were driving to the store and the moon was low and huge! Orange too. I was in the store about 10 minutes and when I came out the moon was smaller and way up in the sky. I don’t know how it changed so quickly!

  2. How you managed to capture the ring of Saturn with such clarity is beyond me. Such unbelievable pictures! Theyโ€™re all so glorious, the Moon is stunning! ๐Ÿคฉ

    • Jupiterโ€™s moons are also so clear! I wouldnโ€™t have known if Iโ€™d seen them in the sky. The shot of the Moon behind the tree is ethereal- looks straight out of a storybook!

      • The number of Jupiter’s moons that the camera can see changes from night to night. The other night 4 moons were showing. I try and do photos that look a little different. I was really happy with the moon tunnel shot.

      • You have to be very happy with all your shots everyday then! ๐Ÿ˜€
        I get really happy when I click good pics. Iโ€™m an excellent photographerโ€ฆ if screenshots count as photographs ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™ˆ
        So you have something to feel happy about everyday ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Photography makes me happy. Otherwise I wouldn’t do it. I’m sure you are a wonderful photographer when you do it.

      • The only kind of photography Iโ€™m good at is screenshots, like I said before. ๐Ÿ˜… Ofcourse, you are such a professional and it must a cathartic experience.

    • Thanks, Sam. I’ve been trying different settings at different times of night on Saturn. I got a decent combo tonight.

    • No! Not at all. And I’m surprised I get them with a 400mm lens. Saturn is particularly difficult because it is small and doesn’t shine as brightly as Jupiter and Venus. Thanks, Roberta.

      • No doubt. It was so funny how clear the moon was for the maybe two minutes? I was able to capture a few clicks… Nothing worth going nuts about ๐Ÿ™‚

      • No rain… just clouds. Still, I did manage to get a few ๐Ÿ˜‰ The cell phone ones were shared on IG, the camera ones, I looked at and might just share one, as well ๐Ÿ™‚
