Gone Hunting

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Orion stalks the night sky, hunting Taurus the Bull.

Just as the moon was rising on the eastern horizon, moments before she blazed the sky with so much light that Orion was washed away.

I'm going to give it a go with a film camera, just waiting for a clear night sky! So i'll probably have to deal with the horror of film reciprocation!

Thanks Mary and Daniel!

Mary, winter is the only time of year I can do this, doesn't get dark enough to see stars in another month or so here.

Daniel I might try that, longer exposures, circling around Polaris... sounds like FUN!

Okay this is awesome! I have always wanted to do something like this but do not yet have the equipment. Perhaps one centered on Polaris in the future? =)

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
