Walkway Over The Hudson: Moonwalk Views

The Walkway Over the Hudson has regular “moonwalks” that feature lectures on astronomy, telescopes, and suchlike.

I’m a sucker for the terrestrial views. Looking north-northwest toward Kingston, with the Catskills in the distance:

Walkway evening view - NNW along Hudson
Walkway evening view – NNW along Hudson

A bit later, looking southeast toward Poughkeepsie:

Walkway evening view - SE toward Poughkeepsie
Walkway evening view – SE toward Poughkeepsie

The trouble with amateur astronomy: mostly, it happens at night.

Taken with the Canon SX230HS braced on the railing, then aligned and slightly tweaked.

[Update: Some info on the LED lamps along the Mid-Hudson bridge suspension cables.]
