A blog about a system to determine terrestrial albedo by earthshine observations. Feasible thanks to sheer determination.

Cable near setting Moon

Real World ProblemsPosted by Chris Flynn Mar 29, 2012 09:59AM
The image shows a cable which the moon can move behind as it is setting at 285 degrees azimuth and 25 degrees latitude.

Arrows show the dim line which is the cable against the sky. The middle arrow shows a glint off the cable from the Moon.

The cable can whip around quite a bit in the wind. It clearly shows up in the CCD images when the Moon is behind it.
