Sun, Moon, no stars

Got to see a rather astronomical conjunction on the way down Mauna Kea this morning. On one side of the sky was a rather lovely full moon hanging in the blue early morning sky. On the other was the sun rising. You don’t get to see this often as they have to be 180 degrees apart on the sky at full moon, but the hight of the mountain means we can see a bit below the normal horizon and can get more than 180 degrees of sky.

Sadly I don’t have a wide enough angle lens to get a picture.

One thought on “Sun, Moon, no stars

  1. How to hold your camera to take a 180 by 360 panaorama. Stitch it together afterwards with Hugin.
