    Looks like Manchester Honda/KTM. They back the KTM's to the window like that.

    So, if it doesn't snow, does that mean you don't age? Sounds like a hella good deal to me. Add in the "time on 2 wheels doesn't count" discount and you've got to be, what, 25?

    The skies cleared up this evening as the sun set allowing me to take this photo of the comet Pan-STARS

    that's the moon Terry...

















    jk.. nice shot.. how long after sunset was it? edit: I'm also curious to know what you were using for settings/lens since I just remembered that the moon was a sliver of a crescent when I was driving home this evening.. In your photo it looks like a full moon but there are no star trails..

    When was that taken? The moon hasn't been full for 10 days or so. Does a time lpse make it look full?

    Sunset was at 6:47 PM, pic was shot at 7:54 PM, so 1 hour and 7 minutes after sunset. I took a bunch of pics once the comet became visible, the first at 7:45 PM, the last at 7:59 PM. The comet sank below the horizon moments after the last shot.

    EDIT: Corrected the last two times above, they were off by an hour. I still need to reset the camera time for DST.

    The moon just looks full due to the long exposure needed to capture the dim comet.

    The moon really looked more like this tonight:
