As a bonus, Mars will be just to the left of the moon tonight. Look for the reddish, star-like object.
Now I'm not a photographer. I don't have a super cool camera with zoom and telephoto lenses. I just have my little old Kodak EasyShare camera. But even with my camera I was able to take some pretty decent pictures. You can even see Mars which is to the left. I didn't believe it was really Mars, but I took several shots and Mars is always there! You can click on the photos to enlarge them so you can really make out Mars.
I know Mars looks like a little red squiggle, that is because my camera isn't the greatest, but still it's pretty cool. I wish I had taken these pictures earlier when the moon was down lower, I almost had to point the camera straight up into the sky to get these, but I went out to enjoy a Friday night with my sister and we had a great meal and I had a well earned beer! I love Corona with Salt and Lime..Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
I know several of you out there are expert photographers so I hope you got great pictures (I'm talking to you JarieLyn and Stine!)
