John O'Neal's Messier Objects


joM31062709.jpg

My captures of Charles Messier's famous collection of 101 "faint fuzzy" objects that hampered his observations of comets. After many nights of looking for comets and finding numerous objects that "looked" like comets, he decided to catalog these comet look alikes, to exclude them from his searches.

Camelopardalid Meteor Shower of May 23-24, 2014


IMG_7772-MilkyWay.jpg

Last night I joined a couple of dozen Black River Astronomical Society Members at The Nielsen Observatory to view the upcoming Camelopardalids Meteor Shower. Between the hours of 22:30-Midnight we collectively saw 15 Camelopardalids and 6 Sporadics. After midnight we never saw another meteor, but my camera captured two Camelopardalids and one sporadic between the hours of 2 and 4am. All images in this album shot with a Canon 60Da AstroCamera with a Samyung 8mm fisheye lens.

Uranus and the Eclipsed Moon share the sky!4 viewsI can see Uranus quite clearly tonight!!!
Can you see Uranus?
Do you want to see Uranus?

It's the blue/green dot to the left of the Moon. The faint white dots below and to the right of the moon are stars. Normally we don't see them so close to the Moon because the bright glare of the Moon washes out the sky.
