From Cactus Flats at the Pawnee Prairie Grasslands in NE Colorado on Sept. 16, 2006 is a shot of the rising Moon and
the nearby Pleiades asterism (M35). This was prompted because of a comment from one of my NCAS friends that said
you can't take a picture of the Moon & M35 next to each other.....So, I had to try.

This shot is from my front porch using the G.E. X5 DSLR. No points for asethic quality, but both objects are visible very close to each other.
