Conjunction of the Moon and the Pleiades, Saturday March 20, 2010

Moment by moment, the Moon crawls up the sky towards its Saturday night encounter with the Pleiades - on the first night of Spring!

Images taken Friday, March 19 at 7:28 PM. Compare to these images from Thursday night.

LEFT: Unenhanced image, with the Pleiades circled.

RIGHT: Contrast enhanced to 88 with Adobe PhotoDeluxe.

Remember, I won't be able to photograph or even observe the actual event tomorrow, so I'm counting on everyone else to see it for me!
