Camera/Film: Pentax, 28mm, Fuji Super G+ 800, 15 seconds. On May 8-11 we were socked-in with clouds -- there went the opportunity for a thin crescent Moon adjacent to Comet Hale-Bopp. The sky cleared somewhat on the 12th, and with a wide-angle I was at least able to get both celestial objects in the same frame. We do get a lot of clouds here on the east shore of Lake Ontario, but I think they just make things all the prettier!
