My daughter, grandson & I take an annual holiday photo. Here is our 2020 pic in Wrightwood CA.  I’m looking forward to seeing them soon!

Just a check-in from a former Cochise County resident! My son Joseph visited and we stayed a night in West Yellowstone Montana - it's only 80 miles up the road from me. Though the road into Yellowstone Park was closed to vehicles, we hiked in and shared the road with a bunch of cross country ski-ers. And their VERY happy dogs running alongside. I like visiting stuff in the off season - it was practically deserted, even though 3.8 million people visit the park every year. OK quiz time - which is me and which is my son? Hint: although he towers over me at 6 foot 6, I'm still heavier!

K9 holiday fun

The Great Conjunction continues to progress. Jupiter and Saturn are now about 0º 40" apart. Tonight's landscape view also features Zodiacal Light which is seen as a triangle of light from the horizon up to about where the planets are. Zodiacal Light is defined as sunlight reflecting off dust grains that circle the sun in the inner solar system. After the sun sets, its rays point upward to reflect off the dust, creating the glow. The close-up view is a single shot from my DSLR through a 6" telescope. The planets are getting noticeably closer, and I may line up the close ups in a separate post. As always, Saturn is the upper planet and if you enlarge the image, you might be able to detect the Moon Titan just below the planet, and Jupiter is the lower planet complete with its four visible Moons.
