From the Lens of Lisa

The skies just haven’t cooperated in pursuit of some of my targets. On the few nights/ early mornings I managed to get out, I made some captures, and embraced the clouds in some cases! 

6/3/22 18% Waxing Crescent Moon

Double Moon? 

The real one is the 7% illuminated Waxing Crescent Moon 7/1/22 at Jenkinson’s Boardwalk.

Gave it a shot early this morning 7/11/22 to try to see the comet, but no luck with the full-ish Moon.  But seeing the Moon and Antares together were a nice consolation prize.
