One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2017—Arizona Night Sky

I’m visiting my friends Melinda and Lonnie in Prescott, AZ for a few days.  After dinner we sat on the patio enjoying the cooling breeze and the clear, star-filled sky.    Seemingly all of a sudden,  the stars were gone and huge puffy clouds filled the night sky.  The waxing gibbous moon is visible through a break in the clouds and beneath the moon, Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo is visible in another break in the clouds.  My tripods were still packed and I couldn’t hold my camera still at such a slow shutter speed of 1/13 of a second, so Spica is more of a short line than a dot.
