1350-88 - An aurora display on the night of June 7/8, 2015 from southern Alberta, with an old rustic farm truck as the foreground. This is a frame from a 450-frame time-lapse with the Nikon D750 at ISO 1600 and the Sigma 24mm lens at f/2.8, for 8 seconds each. The foreground is from a stack of 8 images adjacent in time to the sky image stacked in Mean mode for smoothing of noise.
1350-174 - The waxing crescent Moon setting over a nearby farm, on June 26, 2017. Shot at the start of a time-lapse sequence, and shot in haste from home as the Moon appeared from beneath an otherwise very cloudy sky. The dark side of the Moon is lit by Earthshine, prominent despite the Moon's low altitude and bright twilight sky.
1350-153 - The rising of the Full Moon on Easter eve, Saturday, March 31, 2018, on a very cold night with lots of snow still on the ground in Alberta. So this is more a winter Moon than a spring one. This is the 'paschal' Moon ' the one that defines the date of Easter, being the first Full Moon after the vernal equinox. The first Sunday after that Full Moon, in this case the next day, is Easter Sunday.
