Mont Saint-Michel was an unbelievable experience. Once the tourists emptied out, the town quieted down for the night. This was a 15 second exposure that was timed around the shuttle bus that travels back-and-forth along (and vibrates) the bridge.
The Moon (99% waxing gibbous), accompanied by Saturn and Jupiter, rises above Memorial Church at Stanford University. In terms of lining up the moon with a building, visit Photo Ephemeris, which is pretty accurate. In retrospect, I should have consulted it beforehand. Instead, I used the augmented reality feature in PhotoPills, which was not as precise.
One of the cooler buildings on the Stanford campus, the Clark Center is home to Bio-X, a multi-disciplinary lab that pulls from researchers from the departments of biology, chemistry, physics, engineering and medicine.
When I searched up NEOWISE on Starry Night, I discovered that there were multiple sky objects named after NEOWISE, the project searching for “near-Earth objects and comets that could pose an impact hazard to the Earth.” The one that we are all excited about right now is C/2020 F3, which currently is visible in the hour or so before sunrise.
This photo was taken at ISO 100, 200mm, f/2.8 and 8.0s. At 200mm, I should have limited the shutter to 2.5 seconds to avoid star trails.
