Article header_simple

The new Nova in morning night sky near Sagittarius is still giving a good show even in a light polluted areas. The images were taken in the same morning of the Lunar eclipse of April 4th 2015

The location of the observation was taken in Santa Susana Pass, and the direction of the Nova is toward the west, where it was near the San Fernando Valley light pollution.

The image above shows the Teapot pattern, or Asterism, on the lower left corner of the image.

I had to climb a little higher on trail i was taken, and to wait a title longer so the nova position will get higher in the sky and a little more away from the light pollution as I was observing the Moon eclipse.

Even not far away from the city, the Nova is bright changing the image of the Teapot pattern and the Sagittariuses constellation. The Nova to our eyes is a new star in the sky.

And in the subject of changing patterns of the sky because of unusual placement of celestial object, the planet Saturn is doing a well job in disturbing the Scorpio constipation pattern.

The next set of images shows this phenomena beautifully, so enjoy it this year before it changes as the seasons past by.
