But this August, there will be a total solar eclipse.
Cool! What parts of the world will be able to see it?


The latest bulletin from NASA states on Friday, August 01, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from a narrow corridor that traverses half the Earth. The path of the Moon’s umbral shadow begins in Canada and extends across northern Greenland, the Arctic, central Russia, Mongolia, and China where it will end at sunset http://sunearth.gsfc.nasa.gov/eclipse/OH/OH2008.html

He's kidding (kinda). He had a moon photo deactivated because it was so good someone thought NASA took it. ;-)


Hmmm... image 3091053 is still no available. I guess it was the moon in this inhauscreative's awesome collage:

...very nice work, very creative !! I do not mean to criticize but the sky has a focus value of infinity, stars and moon as well planets are flat at the same focusing distance, so I would downsize the moon shot because it doesn't match the focus of the stars which appear to be tack sharp, just a thought. Still very nice collage

Dieter, the images on that site are spectacular!  I often work evening and midnights as a police officer, now I will carry my heavy tripod with me for those moments we aren't busy.  I have seen some amazing night skies while working overnight, but never really knew how to capture them.  Thanks!

Looking at the PDF link, it looks like the best place to observe and photograph this eclipse is Staryy-Nadym in the Providence of Omsk.  Any iStockers within 1,000 miles of here?

I got pulled over for a busted headlight the evening of the eclipse. I told the officer to keep an eye on the sky that night and he seemed glad for the tip.

Maybe tripods should be standard issue?

Hey another FANTASTIC PROGRAM for you guys wanting to shoot the sky Stellarium.org.

Yeah, My Moon In the collage was deactivated by accident and hopefully scout will re-instate it.

I agree, however for print and most likely it will be printed small I left the stars sharp.

"...very nice work, very creative !!

also astropix.com has tons of info on shooting the nightskies....

Hey, just take your cameras to a dark area and with a wide angle, ISO 400 F2.8 just shoot the sky for 15-20 seconds, it will get you hooked....I'm new to shooting the night sky, but really look forward to getting great shots...do a searh for Space shots on IS there are a few great photographers getting great nebulas and stuff!
