  Two celestial ornaments eternally dangle inside this photograph. A waxing crescent Moon shares the evening sky with Venus—a hellish world about 162 million miles (261 million km) from Earth. The colors of sunset bleeds toward the horizon as a cold blue sky sweeps away the remnants of a dying day. The crescent Moon glows from its tilted orbit above the ecliptic, but the magnitude of Venus can never be ignored. Paula Graham observed this jealous inducing scene from her patio, and photographed the short lived cosmic event. Venus sets relatively early and the Moon will never be in the [Click Here To Read Article...]

  Are you in the mood to see something spooky? Halloween is over, but that doesn’t we can’t resurrect the evil holiday spirit. Keyfra Photography kept her eye on the sky and photographed a cratered world—the Moon. Earthly haze smothered the damaged celestial orb and silhouetted trees veiled the night sky. Keyfra discovered a cosmic window through the trees and immortalized the brief moment. Hesitation would have granted the Moon enough time to become eclipsed by trees, but Keyfra beat the cosmic clock, just in time to reveal nature’s scary side. Boo!   **Click [Click Here To Read Article...]

Glowing Gibbous

  Keyfra Photography kept her eye on the sky and noticed something full of craters—the Moon.   Earth’s ruinous satellite can easily be seen while it’s in a waning gibbous phase, and it tends to be observable throughout the early morning (depending on location).

☠ The moon ain’t scared of a little fire! Asteroids bashed the lunar surface about 3.8 billion years ago. Molten blood seared the desolate world. Blistering rocks rained, tumbled, and pummeled—countless craters shattered the loony environment.   Keyfra kept her eye on the sky while a local forest fire polluted the sky with smokey pollutants. Did that stop her from taking a lunar portrait? Of course [Click Here To Read Article...]

When the sun goes to sleep, the moon comes out to play. That’s the way it works, right?
