Here are some first images. the first is a 12 image stitched together from Daisy Farm. The reflection in the lower right is from Jupiter. The second is also from Daisy Farm with John Vucetich's sailboat. Reflection in water is also from Jupiter which is bright planet above the radar.He was there checking on his moose researchers.

Beautiful. What's the source of the orange glow on the horizon below Jupiter?

I believe its the loom of Houghton, I have seen this before esp. out in Death Valley you can pick up loom from an Air Force base from over 75 miles and Las Vegas from over 125 miles. I realize Las Vegas is a lot brighter. As the night progressed loom got less prominent which I took to be as it got later less lights as people crashed.

Fantastic. Makes me want to dedicate a trip to doing something of this sort -- I'm envious of your dedication!

It appears that you are the gentleman we ran into at Daisy Farm pier on 6/2. Nice to chat with you and to get a chance to see your work. Fantastic pics.

We were the family of 4 (en route from Moskey Basin) that stopped there in a canoe for a snack and a run to the privy.

Cheers!
