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!


About 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 photo galleries at or Thanks for looking! Colleen
