Arcturus is at far left setting in the northwest over Pyramid Mountain, while Capella in Auriga and the stars of Perseus are rising at right in the northeast. This was on a mid-October night when the Big Dipper rides low in the northern sky from this latitude of 53° N.
13898633 - A panorama of an arc of noctilucent clouds over a ripening field of yellow canola, on July 14, 2022 from southern Alberta near Hussar. This was about 11:20 pm MDT with the NLCs near their peak. They reached a little higher when they first appeared a few minutes earlier in the brighter sky, but capturing them is always a balance between getting them at their maximum height vs. the darkness of the sky background to make the fainter structures stand out. The foreground is illuminated mostly by twilight, and I have brightened it to bring out the canola colours and the colour contrast between earth
13898071 - Mars, Venus and Jupiter (in that order from top to bottom) in a triangle, in conjunction, at an old farmstead near Vulcan, Alberta, in the morning twilight, October 28, 2015. Illumination is from the nearly Full Hunter’s Moon in the west. The trio of planets were in Leo in a fine conjunction not to be repeated until November 21, 2111. Almost all of Leo is visible here, with Regulus, the constellation’s brightest star, just to the right of the windmill blades at top.

Stacked with Advanced Stacker Actions. The foreground comes from a stack of 8 of the final exposures, mean combined, to smooth noise.
13898856 - The waxing crescent Moon setting over a nearby farm, on June 26, 2017. Shot at the start of a time-lapse sequence, and shot in haste from home as the Moon appeared from beneath an otherwise very cloudy sky. The dark side of the Moon is lit by Earthshine, prominent despite the Moon’s low altitude and bright twilight sky.
13898804 - The rising "supermoon" of July 12, 2022 embedded in the blue arc of Earth's shadow, rimmed by the pink Belt of Venus band of twilight colours, all over the badlands formations of Dinosaur Provincial Park on the Red Deer River in Alberta, Canada. The blue band on the horizon is the shadow of the Earth cast onto the atmosphere opposite the sunset point. The pink Belt of Venus above the shadow is from red sunlight still illuminating the upper atmosphere, an effect that lasts only a few minutes at sunset or sunrise, and requires a very clear sky to show up, as it was this night.
13898781 - Mars (bottom) and Saturn in conjunction at right, and the Milky Way at left, in deep blue twilight before the sky got filly dark, over the old corral of the 76 Ranch, in Grasslands National Park, Saskatchewan, August 27/28, 2014.

13898528 - The quarter Moon reflected in the waters of Reesor Lake, Alberta in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park. Taken on July 5, 2014. This is with the 14mm Rokinon lens and Canon 6D at ISO800. This is a high dynamic range stack of 6 exposures from 1/15 to 0.6 seconds taken just before using the camera to take a motion control time-lapse. The Moon was in conjunction with Mars (right of Moon) and Spica (left of Moon) but in the bright twilight they are not showing up here.
13898526 - The rising "supermoon" of July 12, 2022 embedded in the blue arc of Earth's shadow, rimmed by the pink Belt of Venus band of twilight colours, all over the badlands formations of Dinosaur Provincial Park on the Red Deer River in Alberta, Canada. The blue arc is the shadow of the Earth cast onto the atmosphere opposite the sunset point. The pink Belt of Venus is from red sunlight still illuminating the upper atmosphere, an effect that lasts only a few minutes at sunset or sunrise, and requires a very clear sky to show up, as it was this night.
13898520 - The morning sky of January 11, 2018, with the waning crescent Moon shining above the pairing of Mars (left) and Jupiter (right). The Moon and planets are in Libra just east (left) of the star Zubenelgenubi, or Alpha Librae. Left of centre, Antares and the stars of Scorpius are just rising in the dawn twilight.

13898086 - A busy morning sky, with the waning crescent Moon shining above the pairing of Mars (left) and Jupiter (right), with the Space Station also streaking by below in four exposures. The Moon and planets are in Libra. Left of centre, Antares and the stars of Scorpius are just rising in the dawn twilight.
13898005 - Sunset twilight colours and the waxing gibbous Moon over the Chiricahua Mountains in southeast Arizona, south of Willcox. Taken December 15, 2013 on Highway 186. Taken with the 24mm lens and Canon 5D MkII. Some dark crepuscular rays are visible converging to the anti-solar point.
13897791 - This is the line-up of planets across the southwestern sky on December 6, 2021, consisting of (L to R): Jupiter, Saturn and Venus, with the 2.5-day-old waxing crescent Moon in conjunction below Venus. The Moon had eclipsed the Sun two days before on December 4, when it was on the ecliptic. Two days later it was below the ecliptic line. Jupiter and Saturn are in Capricornus, with its stars all visible here in the evening twilight. The three planets are nicely equally spaced. Such an array makes the ecliptic line visible.
