On August 29th Mercury and the thin waxing crescent moon met up for a lovely celestial show. The view from the Río Hurtado valley in Chile was spectacular, as the sunset colors changed from pink to purple to dark red. Add to that the brilliant earthshine of the moon and the silhouettes of cacti on the horizon, and you have the right ingredients for a wonderful photo.    

*Update: My image of the planetary lineup was chosen by NASA as their astronomy picture of the day (APOD) for June 17, 2022.* Two local papers, El Ovallino and El Día also picked up on the publication of my photo as APOD on the NASA website. These mornings are the perfect time to watch the five planets, that are visible to the naked eye, form a beautiful line shortly before sunrise. Interestingly

On Sunday night, we could watch how the full Flower Moon moved through Earth's shadow, resulting in a total lunar eclipse. Since the Moon was close to Earth, this was also a Super Moon. Because the eclipsed Moon turns into a dark red color, its popular name is Blood Moon. Thus, we were witnessing a Super Flower Blood Moon. With a total duration of 5 hours and 19 minutes, it was

We were treated to a partial solar eclipse on April 30, 2022. Partial solar eclipses happen when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth, but the Moon only partially covers the Sun's disk. Here at the southern edge of the Atacama Desert, the Moon covered roughly 23 percent of the Sun's disk during the maximum of the eclipse. All this happened deep in the western sky, and shortly before

On April 30, 2022, we witnessed a magnificent conjunction of the two brightest planets, Jupiter and Venus, with Mars and Saturn as celestial observers higher in the sky. While Jupiter was the lowest planet in the sky before April 30, it swapped places with Venus after that date, and will have a close encounter with Mars on May 29, 2022.      

I was finally able to image Comet Leonard, aptly dubbed this year's Christmas comet. Officially named C/2021 A1 (Leonard), this inbound long period comet was discovered by G. J. Leonard at the Mount Lemmon Observatory on 3 January 2021. It swept closest to Earth on December 12, 2021, and passed by bright Venus on December 17-18, 2021. It will make its closest approach to the sun (perihelion) on January 3,

It was an exciting day at El Sauce Observatory as this remote Chilean observatory witnessed the arrival of the ATLAS telescope. ATLAS stands for "Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System" and refers to an asteroid impact early warning system developed by the University of Hawaii and funded by NASA. Currently, the ATLAS system consists of four identical telescopes: one at Mauna Loa Observatory on Big Island (Hawaii/USA), a second on the summit of
