Astrophotography by Jimmy Westlake

(Far left) "Jimmy's 2014 Cosmic Calendar - Year of Eclipses" - features some of his best astrophotographs and is chock full of information about cool celestial events in the coming year! (Top) “VLA Polar Trails” - The rotation of the Earth created concentric arcs over an 80-foot dish of the Very Large Array of radio telescopes near Socorro, New Mexico. (Bottom right) - “The Christmas Star” - Venus sits atop this snow-covered spruce tree. (Bottom left) Right place, right time, right equipment, and a little luck. The "Ring of Fire" was almost perfectly centered behind this lone windmill near Sundown, Texas on May 20, 2012.
