2007/10/27 - Stargazing


img_2305.jpg

I went outside to look for comet 17P/Holmes. I found it hard to spot with any certainty with the naked eye, but decided to bring out the camera and the 300mm as well, and boy what a difference that made. The fuzzy comet is clearly visible against the pinpoint background stars.

Since we were out anyway, I decided to get a quick shot of the ol' moon as well.

After having it closed for repairs, management finally opened our pool again today, and of course the kids are already using the hell out of it...

2007/06/23 - Bay City River Roar


img_8244.jpg

Every year, there's a powerboat race on the Saginaw river in Bay City. In addition to the actual racing, various parts of the US armed forces had set up shop on the grounds, seeking the talents of our young men and women. Also, since the event was co-sponsored by St. Mary's hospital, their FlightCare helicopter paid a visit as well.

2007/06/19 - ISS and STS-117


img_7820.jpg

Space Shuttle Atlantis completed its undocking from the International Space Station earlier today, so when the pair flew overhead tonight, I grabbed the camera and went outside for a few shots. It may be a bit hard to see in the pictures, but there are two streaks of light, one trailing slightly behind the other.
