Polvadera, NM (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Not clouds, but smoke from a forest fire raging 150 miles away :-( The Moon had been blood red when on the horizon, I just didn't get out in time to catch it.

About mcgino


As a former astronomer I am an avid sky watcher. I have lived in New Mexico for a dozen years and am constantly amazed by the beautiful skies. My favorite subjects to photograph are the skies of course, cats (I rescue strays), and robots (I have a HUGE collection). If you would like to see more photographs of any of the above be sure to visit my photo galleries at or Thanks for looking! Colleen
