The Sun and the Moon, and Jupiter too!

Here are some interesting photos from last week…

The Sun with Unaltered Color The Red Sun

Two images of the sun taken within minutes of each other.  The image on the left is the sun in its natural yellow color.  As you pull more light away from the sun, you can get slightly more detail, and more red color.  The sun spot on the right side looks small on the sun, but it is about the size of the earth.

Moon with Jupiter

As the moon made its trip across the sky, it passed Jupiter.  Jupiter and the moon will not be this close again for well over 10 years.  This is a difficult shot to get, as the moon tends to wash out the shot.
