Black (and White) Magic

Ok, so I'm not actually at the butte, and this photo is a whole couple weeks old, but I like it so here is is. Right now I'm up at the cabin, with the parents and a warm cat. More to come later, internet willing.

Night dish

Look" Another update!

So, now I've uploaded more goodness to flickr, so there's not much to say there. This was taken early one morning (rhymes with towards the end of an all night drive), but still hours away from twilight. The Gila Monster is lit entirely by moonlight. I was driving from Phoenix to Elephant Butte, so I took the scenic route by using US 60. It was great! Especially after 11 when the rest of the traffic had stopped. Once I was past Show Low, there was only another vehicle every twenty minutes or so. From the state line to Socorro I saw all of four vehicles on the road, but I had to stop completely a couple times for elk. They just weren't in a hurry to go anywhere. I saw dozens of them, plus a few deer and hundreds of rabbits. The VLA looks good at night, but the really cool thihg is the way the stars left streaks as the earth's rotation dragged them across the image. It was so still that I could hear that people were talking by the next dish down, and I could hear the whine of the motors as the dish was moved. Gotta love all my stuff from my dorm sitting in back of the jeep.

Ah, that road is a good one.

Heeling Over

Ok, so here's a photo. I said I'd update, didn't I? Have no fear, more are coming, and there are already a few on my Flickr photostream.

Updates coming…

So it's been a while since I've updated this blog. That will be changing. I moved from Tempe to Albuquerque over the summer, which means I now have to hunt for places with wifi. Right now that means I'm in front of the Apple store, but i may not be for long. These security guys are forming a big clump across the way. I've got the window down and a light on, but they aren't to interested in talking to me. So, yeah, anyone who has internet I can use, I'd really appreciate it. My mom is also looking for the stuff.
