Winter solstice conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn 12_21_20

Jupiter is the larger, brighter object. Next conjunction this close will be in about 375 years. Can’t wait!

Sunset 12_20_20

Nice sunset brings nature’s Christmas lights to the Sangre de Cristos. And an almost quarter moon up in the pink clouds.

Moon and planets 12_16_20

Saturn, Jupiter and the waxing crescent moon (in descending order). The two planets will be the closest to each other (called a conjunction) on the Winter solstice, December 21st. It will be another 60 years before they are this near to each other. So get out and look up!

Nice altocumulus clouds at sunset on a very frigid day (didn’t get much above freezing).

Timelapse clouds

Quick moving storm clouds over the Sange de Cristos today. Each segment represents about 10 and a half minutes. Looks like the mountains got some snow, yay!

December 2nd storm

4.5 inches this morning and cooooold temps. It’s very welcome moisture during this drought. The mountains were roiling with clouds and that made for some interesting timelapses.
