9:30, 1:30, 5:30

9:30 pm last night. Jupiter is in the lower left of the photo, and Saturn is close to the right edge of the photo.

Jupiter and three of its moons at 1:30 am this morning. I woke up and 1:30 am and remembered I had left the drip systems on, so I got up and turned off the drip system and photographed Jupiter. I forgot my iPhone, so I didn’t get any wide-angle photos of the sky at 1:30 am.

Jupiter with three of its moons at 5:30 am this morning. It’s interesting how the moons change positions through the night.

  1. Beautiful evening clouds, Tim. I love the blue and gold colors. The night sky is beautiful too! I can’t get over how you can pick out Jupiter and its moons with that lens! I can just about make out Jupiter’s banded atmosphere.

    We are clouding up here tonight after a warm day in the upper 80s.

  2. Tim, more beautiful skies. You get incredible photos with your particular sleep/wake cycle. All to our advantage to view them. Thanks! 📚🎶 Christine

  3. I love photos of the sky. The sky is something so…alive. always puts on a show. Whether it’s the stars at night, or some magnificent clouds, even the clear blue color is incredible to watch. Thanks for sharing your photos. Beautiful, as always.

  4. It’s always so interesting to see your photographs of the universe. I’ve tried to make the same discovery journey at night but there’s so much light pollution in this part of the world. Yes, I can spot the moon and with a little luck Venus and Mars. But that’s about it I’m afraid…

    • We get a lot of light polution, also, but at least I can still see a lot of stars and planets.

  5. How wonderful you don’t have the same level of light pollution and are able to capture these beauties. More than nicely done, Tim

    • Sleep gets to be sketchy at times. The night sky always has something to offer. Thanks, JYP.
