Comet Holmes1968 viewsComet Holmes 11-5-2007.

Comet Holmes has been known for more than a century. But a recent change has brought much attention. The comet’s brightness has increased dramatically.

This is a photo taken with a 75-300 Zoom Lens on my Canon Digital Rebel. Comet Holmes can be seen in the Constellation Perseus.

The bright star near the top of the frame is Mirfak, also called Alpha Persei. Comet Holmes is below and to the left. It appears as a fuzzy circle with a bright center.

There is some speculation that Comet Holmes may have been struck by a meteor, producing this large dust cloud which is being illuminated by the Sun.

Purple Mountain's Majesty1968 viewsTaken 9/16/06
The setting Sun and smoke from the "Day" Fire combined with the rugged San Gabriel Mountains created this interesting gradation of color and tone.

At Last 12-04-20121961 viewsI set the CritterCam up in late November 2012. I checked the SD Memory Card each week to look for animals. It was a monotonous task going through each image one by one and deleting the ones I didn't want (which was most of them). Then one day I was scrolling through the images and came across this. I said out loud "holy S&#%".

Hummer1943 viewsPhot taken 10/8/05 in my front yard. The Mexicam Sage attracts quite a few Humming Birds. This year (2006) we had as many as 8-10 at a time fighting over the bush's beautiful purple blooms.

Taurid Meteor1940 viewsTaurid Meteor shower. The Taurids are linked to debris from comet 2P/Enke, and roughly every 3 years there is an outburst as Earths orbit intersects the debris cloud. My WeatherCam captured this very bright Taurid Meteor.
