Carrizozo, NM (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: It was completely overcast here in Socorro and even started raining last night, so I had to drive east about 50 to 60 miles until I got to clear skies. I saw quite a few meteors but caught very few on camera. No matter, it was a beautiful night! This is two 15 minute exposures stacked together.


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
