1%–the Holy Grail!


I went out for a brief sunset tonight, looking to capture Comet PAN-STARRS.  Looking at Time and Date, I also noticed we’d have a 1% Moon.  I’d previously captured a 2% Moon, but never had the opportunity to capture the sliver.  While I didn’t see the comet (it is challenging!), the Moon was spectacular.  If our clear weather is consistent over the next few days, I might have a shot at capturing the comet, as well!

    Yup, look real close in the 10 o’clock position . I would estimate about 15 degrees or so from the moon. It is faint,but visible!
