Skywatch Friday


Late sunset, early moonrise. That's not a UFO - just a blurry moon, taken by an amateur who needs a tripod. For skyward pics from around the world (by people with tripods and better cameras and skills) check out Skywatch Friday.

Wonderful pic. I would have said it was a UFO. Imagine the number of hits you would get on your blog!

I have a tripod and the most of the time don't use it. I like real photos like this.

Thanks for commenting everyone!
The blur is caused by the nighttime setting on my camera. The shutter hesitates, I suppose, because it's trying to adjust to the lack of light. So, if you move in the slightest while you're taking the pic, you get a blur or worse, a smeary blob.
At least that's my very unprofessional opinion. I welcome any other explanations. Maybe it WAS a UFO, ha!
Happy weekend!
