The Moon occulted Venus today. That means that the Moon passed In front of the planet and hid it for around one hour. The weather forecast was pretty iffy in Paris, but I was lucky and got literally 40 seconds when I was able to see the Moon and Venus next to it. I took a shot while the first rai...
Theres a partial lunar eclipse tonight. Unfortunately the weather in Paris doesnt cooperate and I will not be able to photograph it. So I leave you with this partial eclipse shot in Lofoten in 2018.
Astrophotography under the Big Dipper. Whats the boxy thing piggybacking on @vladulaus telescope you may ask. Thats @george_pascanus Mamiya RB67 camera taking photos of the night sky on medium format film.

Eleven years ago today, I witnessed a transit of Venus across the Sun's disk. We dont have a usual sunrise in this photo. The black disk on the Sun is actually planet Venus. This very rare event will not happen again until 2117!
The constellation of Orion prepares to set behind the buildings in Aker Brygge. Its easy to spot Orion, on the left hand side of the photo. It looks like a bow tie. The brightest object in the photo is the Moon. To the upper left of the Moon, you can see red Mars. Below the Moon and a little to t...
