Lots of fun, lots of learning, LOTS of great memories!

The Supermoon did not disappoint. The wolves were out to enjoy the Supermoon too, they started to howl a minute or two before the moon was visible. #shootyournightskies #supermoon

Greetings from The Path of Totality...! After 13 hours and 857 miles, the Eclipsemobile has arrived in Casper, Wyoming. No matter what else happens, in some way, shape or form, the shadow of the moon will pass directly over my head and cameras on Monday, 8/21/2017...! Just need to find a suitable foreground.......... Where will you be?

This is the #NorthAmerica #nebula, or #NGC7000.
It's big.
And pretty.
With much more going on than my camera could capture, but still.
WOW.
Carry on.

Cruising the Milky Way

If you keep your eye on the Milky Way, can you see that you’re standing on the side of a giant rotating planet…….? This short clip is from a sequence set up for the camera to track the Milky Way. Tracking allows the Earth to rotate underneath, revealing how it's the Earth's movement that actually causes the Milky Way to appear to move during the night. I like this view since it shows (to me at least!) how we're really sitting on the edge of space, with nothing between us and the stars except the clear gases of our atmosphere.
What do you think?

MOST RECENT

X9.3 Solar Flare = Northern Lights...! As an unabashed science nerd, I can tell you that the space weather data yesterday was LITERALLY off the charts. Kp of 8, Bz of -30, solar wind of > 700 km/sec….the stuff of legends. What does it mean? We got a nice display of the Aurora Borealis, seen here at Sherburne Wildlife Refuge, outside the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. The forecasts are looking good for tonight and tomorrow, too (9/8-9, 9/9-10)...! .

Totality Over the Tetons

Grand Teton National Park was a prime spot to view the total solar eclipse of 2017; aligning the eclipse with Grand Teton itself required a little pre-dawn hike up to Lake Solitude at around 9000 ft. elevation. This composite image of 24-mm images of the solar-filtered partial phases and the unfiltered scene at totality along with a 340-mm telephoto shot of the eclipsed sun itself, properly aligned and scaled, just begins to convey the magical, eerie feeling of totality. Although I expected the lakeshore to be packed, there were only a handful of other photographers and backpackers present to share the eclipse experience. Along with the millions of others who saw the event unfold, it will forever be etched in my memory. Stoked to be working on this joint project with legendary @babaktafreshi ; equally stoked the weather conditions were so crisp!

Beyond Surreal

Here's your view of the Total Solar Eclipse of 2017 from the wilderness backcountry of Grand Teton National Park! Right in the path of totality, Grand Teton (13,770') is the tallest mountain in the park. It is the rightmost of the four peaks visible here as we look down Cascade Canyon from the northeastern shore of Lake Solitude (9035'). Mount Owen (12,928') is just to its left with Teewinot Mountain (12,325') again to its left. Crooked Thumb is the spire on the left flank of Teewinot; Crescent Arrete is the protrusion on the left ridge of Mount Owen. This image is just one of over seven thousand made as part of a joint assignment with National Geographic photographer @babaktafreshi It necessitated a 9+ mile, 2200+ ft elevation gain hike in to Lake Solitude starting at 2:00 am. My camera bag was loaded with four cameras, four tripods, solar filters, extra batteries and bear repellent spray (grizzly bears, black bears and moose roam the area). Although the skies were partly cloudy the night before and during the hike in, soon after sunrise they became crystal clear. And then........TOTALITY. The deep cobalt blue of the sky, the sun's electric corona, the shimmering pink prominences and chromosphere, the sudden temperature drop and accompanying winds; all of it left me utterly in awe. What an adventure. How about you....what did you see? And there will be many more images and stories to follow...! #Eclipse2017 #GrandTeton #YourNightscapeProfessor #ShootYourNightSkies #TWAN #Eclipse2024 #eclipse2017 #nightscapes #mikeshawphotography #bpsop #workshop #wyoming #getoutlookup #astronomy #astrophotography #outdoors #hiking #universe #solareclipse #solareclipse2017

Perfectly chiseled petroglyphs. I wonder what stories were told here, from either thousands or hundreds of years ago. If only we knew.

Have You Made Your Test Images Yet?
Now's the time to figure out your exposure settings for your solar-filtered shots of the partial eclipse phases. #solareclipse #eclipse #eclipse2017 #shootyournightskies #getoutlookup #yournightscapeprofessor #photography #exposure

The more I look at this, the more I'm drawn into it. It wasn't the star trails I wanted but sometimes good things can come from mistakes. I couldn't ask for a better foreground than this ancient bristlecone.

Slightly cropped by Instagram, but loving panoramas of the milky way. I wish we were more conscious of light polution so that we can see this beauty every night. It was a busy workshop, something for everyone as you can see - from light painting to time lapse to pano.

Check out this AMAZING image from my friends and colleague @babaktafreshi - from our annual #CaliforniaNightscapes workshop. A pleasure and honor to bring this class to you again in 2018 - you should join us!

Just wrapped up another Santa Monica Mountains Nightscapes in #LosAngeles; perfect conditions! No fog; clear, dark skies and some fun light painting tools brought along by one of my students. This image was made as a composite of three images with different light painted sections. The blue dots were made as I flashed a light downwards as I walked away from the cameras; the orange light at the end was made simply by holding the light downwards. I put my camera on interval timer shooting to collect these images while the students were shooting. We're right in the thick of prime viewing season for the #MilkyWay, let me know if you catch a glimpse - would love to see your images! .

Firelies (or lightning bugs) came out in adundance at the farm in Nebraska this time. I've never seen so many light up the field, pictures just can't capture the magic you feel. Worth the several mosquito bites I endured.
