Moon Over Montana

The skies cleared November 20 and the moon came up over the Sapphires on the east side of the Bitterroot Valley. Even though there was a slight haze, it looked pretty good.

I’ve been hoping that the comets in the area would be bright enough to see, but the Moon took center stage this time. When it is not full, you can see the moon’s mountain ranges and crater rims along the shadow line, or terminator, as the science guys call it.

We’ll keep you updated about Comet ISON and the others that might make a showing in the coming weeks. Programs are being planned on several television channels, including the NASA Channel. ISON is approaching the sun and may not survive the encounter. If it does, the tail might be spectacular.
