Getting ready for Saturday's big date
The Moon slides up the sky towards Saturday night's encounter with the Pleiades. Images taken Thursday, March 18 at 8:51 PM.
LEFT: Unenhanced image, with the Pleiades circled.
RIGHT: Contrast enhanced to 88 with Adobe PhotoDeluxe.
I will be in work Saturday night and won't be able to get outside to photograph or even observe the conjunction. So I'm hoping everybody else gets to do it for me!
