In Alignment170 viewsTaken 5/14/04
A beautiful warm evening here in the Los Angeles area. 95 degrees at my station in Altadena today. I spent the evening in the back yard to watch a visible pass of the International Space Station (ISS) and took some photos of the evening sky. The brightest object is Venus, the "Evening Star". Moving 45 degrees from Venus to the upper left you see Mars and then Saturn. A beautiful alignment of three of the visible planets.

Geminids 12-14-06168 viewsAs mentioned in the earlier photo, I had the WebCam set up to capture an image every minute. This is the second Geminid Meteor I captured. This one was in the early morning hours and the radiant had risen high in the sky and the metoer is going almost straight down in the middle of the image.

These images also appear in the WeatherCam Favorites section.

Na Pali Inside Out167 viewsWe took a wonderful boat ride along the Na Pali Coast. They stopped at several points of interest along the way, the highlight being when they backed into one of the many Sea Caves. Quite a feat considering the fairly rough seas at the time.

Anole158 viewsI believe this is an Anole also but has changed colors to blend in with the lava that he is perched on. This Anole is extending his Dewlap, a type of cartilage that extends from neck & throat area.
