7: The clouds
Dark places and clear sky?
Now to the dilemma for us who had the observatory scheduled after
8 pm. We had certainly been warned that the weather was not the best this season (Mars to April) of the year.
Hence, we had received the full 2 weeks, usually astronomers get just a few days to observe.
Here how it looked just before 8 pm, after another few minutes the clouds had risen above the dome to our frustration.
Constellation Orion, just a little bit out of focus to let the colors be more visible.
The red center is the Orion nebula M42, a star birth region with lot of dusts.
The red light comes from H-Alpha radiation.
