Lunar eclipse photos from my balcony in the Rocky Mountains. I was fortunate to have a clear evening sky.

These photos were taken approximately every 5 minutes.

Art of Data – Exhibit

This art exhibit, at the Boulder Public Library, shows a variety of data represented through art.

As these photographs demonstrate, artists took different information and created unique ways to share it. Looking at weather, population distribution, water, and other statistics combined with their own creativity, led to this interesting event.

Note; This is only a portion of what is displayed.

Some facts about the American Kestrel:

  • They live in areas with low vegetation and few trees.
  • They hunt by day.
  • They are the most common falcon in North America.
  • They dine on insects, small rodents, small birds.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s photo, Haiku, and learning. Thanks for stopping by.

Solstice and the (almost) full moon

As the shortest day of the year turns from daylight to darkness, the moon rises.

This beautiful gibbous moon, just one day shy of a full moon, brightens the night. This was the inspiration for Aliana Reaches for the Moon.

Look for more photos of the moon tomorrow.
