November’s new moon proved to be an exceedingly dark night! On Saturday (Nov. 18), myself and Dr. Rob Edsall met up with six of my photo students at Craters of the Moon National Monument. The monument also happens to be designated an International Dark Sky Park, which means the night sky gets down-right dark! We set up our gear, including Dr. Edsall’s 10-inch reflector telescope, just before sunset and we worked until about 9pm. At that point the temperature dropped to about 18F (about -8C)….our gear was starting to ice-up. So, we fired up the camp stove and had some hot chocolate! In the gallery below, you will find some of my shots and a few from students. Enjoy!
