Saturday Night at Ward Pound Ridge

Moon, but can't see the Pleiades

Westchester Amateur Astronomers observing night 3/20.  Come join us next month (see link in sidebar).

Pleiades and the moon.  I didn’t take a long-enough exposure,  so the second photo is electronically brightened to show the nearby star cluster.  This was best viewed in binoculars!

The moon is over brightened, but now you can see the Pleiades
