I really need a tripod.
Today has been a wonderful day, sunshine, slightly cold and no wind. Our walks can only be described as pretty wonderful 🙂 But what looks like snow in my photographs really is a layer of thick ice, it could take my weight without breaking and I’m no light weight person 🙂 But it is absolutely impossible to walk around quietly when it’s like this on the ground, I sounded like a stamp-mill where ever I walked 🙂 🙂 🙂
Joyce knows that I love anything that has to do with outer space so I got some cool things from her this yule. The round thing to the bottom left in the first photograph is a planet finder. By adjusting it to what year it is, the date and how much the clock is when watching at the night sky it’s so easy to find the planets one can see without any telescope. It took me three seconds to find Jupiter last night. It took me over an hour before I realised that I need a tripod to get a clear photo of a specific thing up there in the sky 🙂 🙂 🙂
The camera moved slightly even when I pressed it down in to the icy snow. Besides, my aiming is somewhat sad too since I couldn’t see through the camera 🙂 But I did catch something that looks very interesting, I really can’t say what it is but it looks like a giant solar storm on a distant star. You can see it for Your self in the photographs I took. I really want to know what it might be but I really can’t say where it happens in the sky, around somewhere when Jupiter shows around 5pm. That will narrow it down to a couple of thousands light years I think 🙂 🙂 🙂
