Milky Way from Strawberry Pinnacles

My son's friend let me borrow his camera, and that allowed me to take a few pictures of the Milky Way from the clear skies above Strawberry Pinnacles. Thank you, Steve......

Time 8:30 PM, 10 Oct 09, settings: 60 sec exposure, f/stop=3.5, 18 mm lens, 1600 ASA, Noise reduction ON. (temperature 38 deg, brrrrrrr)
Also, notice the streak going across the left center. That was a satellite, and I hoped it would be captured in the picture.

Thanks for watching...

Shooting the Moon - Before and After the Bombing

Looks like they not only found water on the moon, but also caused a quick growth of foilage, probably Rain Forest by now. Must have shook an underground spring loose. Note "Before" to the left and "After" to the right.
