Zodiacal Dome

Socorro, NM (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: New Mexico Tech art students painted the mural on the building and stenciled the constellations of the zodiac on the building and dome at the Etscorn Observatory. There was a very nice display of anti-crepuscular rays so I positioned myself such that they would appear to be emanating from the dome :-)

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 www.flickr.com/inlightful or www.inlightfulimages.com Thanks for looking! Colleen
