Portrait of a Busy Sky

on Tuesday, September 28, 2021
The image captures a number of events and objects in sky: a rare 9 degree odd-radius Lunar Halo, a 22 degree lunar halo, a contrail through the lunar halos, Pleiades coming in a near-conjunction with moon, rise of the "hunter" orion, many constellations, etc. This seemed like a really busy sky with a lot going on, all at once!
