Happy August!

Uploaded by: mcgino

Thursday August 1, 2013

Polvadera, NM (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: My cats woke me up around 4:30 AM, so I decided to go out and do some imaging. I was surprised to find there was a nice electrical storm going on in the distance. You can see the Pleiades above the Moon shrouded in clouds. This is how my morning started, not too shabby!

Love this wicked looking storm, but on the other side of the sky, the beauty of the stars. :0) Thanks so much for sharing with us, and giving us that great milkyway vision, with the storm rolling in. Karen

About mcgino

mcgino

As a former astronomer I am an avid sky watcher. I have lived in New Mexico for a dozen years and am constantly amazed by the beautiful skies. My favorite subjects to photograph are the skies of course, cats (I rescue strays), and robots (I have a HUGE collection). If you would like to see more photographs of any of the above be sure to visit my websites at www.mcgino.com or www.inlightfulimages.com Thanks for looking! Colleen
