Sunrises January 23 - 29, 2008  

Wednesday, January 30, 2008

Wednesday: Maybe the sun is starting to rise earlier... or I'm getting up later. Venus is dim, but still visible near the middle-left. A few minutes later it was gone when the sun washed it out.

Thursday: The sky is very similar to the previous day with Venus being at almost the exact spot in the sky. The difference you can't see is the temperature. It was -1 F when I took this photo.

Friday: The clouds were heavy enough to hide the sun, but I didn't even know it was snowing until I saw the flakes illuminated by the flash.

Saturday: After a sprinkling of snow, the clouds stick around.

Monday: Clouds and wind belie the unseasonably warm weather that came in over the weekend. Snow is expected on Tuesday though.

Tuesday: The warm weather is fading, but the clouds have stayed. It's disappointing to not get a better view of stars and planets this week.

I need some advice on my pictures. I've noticed that many have spots on them. I thought at first it must be dust on the lens. You can see them clearly on all of the pictures when they're enlarged, but especially on Tuesday. I used compressed air to blow any out, but the spots are still there and they seem to move from shot to shot. Monday and Tuesday were taken while facing some intense wind, but the other days were pretty calm.
