This was our view of the comet and crescent moon this evening. The comet is not visible to the naked eye but can be seen with binoculars about 30 minutes or so after sunset. This photo was shot with a 200mm lens at f5.6 and 3 second exposure.
Ivy and Alaina competed at their first track meet of the season today and it was a COLD and WINDY day. They are tough cookies. Both competed in 8th Grade High Jump (Ivy 1st and Alaina 2nd) and the 3200 relay (the team came in 2nd). Alaina ran in 2 more relays (1-Mile/2nd and 800/1st); Ivy ran in the 800 (2nd) and 1 mile (1st). So, they both came home with metals from all their events. They both cleared 4'8" in the High Jump but Alaina missed her first try and Ivy didn't. That was very exciting. Hopefully, the weather will be better for the next meet in 3 weeks time.
