Clear Skies in Kodiak Greet Total Lunar Eclipse
Tuesday, 21 December 2010

            Kodiak photographer, and KPC photography instructor, Marion Owen, was out last night capturing images of the total lunar eclipse, and was kind enough to share with us a photo and her technique:

            In addition to setting up the camera and tripod (in the comfort of an upstairs bedroom and shooting through an open window!), we prepared for the evening moon show by making a batch of popcorn, sipping eggnog and hot blueberry-pomegranite spiced cider and nibbling on fruitcake. Yes, we were very blessed with a clear, calm night.

EQUIPMENT

            View of Monday evening's total lunar eclipse shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera, mounted on a tripod, and fitted with a 70-200mm (f/2.8) lens with a 2x extender. Exposure notes: ISO: 400 (at the beginning of the eclipse) and eventually moved to 1600 (as the moon darkened). A cable release was used to reduce camera shake.

Summerall Found Not Guilty of 2nd Degree Murder
Monday, 20 December 2010

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            A 31-year-old Kodiak man has been acquitted of second degree murder after a jury returned a not guilty verdict. But the jury did convict Chawn D. Summerall of felony assault and he will likely remain incarcerated until he is sentenced this spring. He faces a maximum 20 years in prison. 

            Summerall was one of two men accused in the 2008 beating death of 41-year-old Darrell Cavaness of Kodiak. The jury spent late Thursday, all-day Friday and just a couple of hours Monday deliberating before returning its verdict shortly after 10 a.m.

            Neither the prosecutor nor defense attorneys that had argued the case were present for the reading of the verdict but heard the decision through a conference call.

            It was on the night of January 22, 2008 that Cavaness was found beaten unconscious in an apartment on Natalia Way. He died about a week later in an Anchorage hospital.

            An earlier indictment against Summerall was thrown out after a judge ruled prosecutors had presented hearsay as evidence. Charges were refilled against Summerall and the murder trial began December 6th. It included more than 30 witnesses and 300 exhibits entered in as evidence.

            Also indicted is 31-year-old Joshua Erickson, who faces a charge of second-degree murder. Prosecutors had decided to try the men separately and that trial is scheduled to begin in March.

Rare Eclipse-Solstice Tonight/Tomorrow
Monday, 20 December 2010

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            While total a total eclipse of the moon is not rare, tonight Alaskans will experience an event that has occurred only once before in recorded history.

The last time a total eclipse of the moon occurred on the winter solstice was in 1638.

.           The eclipse-which reaches its peak at 11:17 pm-will turn tonight's full moon into an other-worldly orange ball in the night sky.

The solstice marks the first day of winter and the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. And, while the timing is off a bit for Alaskans-the actual "total" portion of the eclipse occurs on Monday-the eclipse cycle continues on into Tuesday-which is solstice day.

            What will happen is that the earth will come directly between the sun and the moon, thus casting its shadow across the face of the moon. Because of the dynamics of light, the moon will appear a funky orange instead of being a black shadow.

            Alaska's eclipse will begin at 9:33 p.m. It will take about an hour for the earth's shadow to totally swallow the moon. The total eclipse itself will last 72 minutes. And then all indications of the eclipse are over and it becomes history by 1:01 a.m. Tuesday.

            KMXT's Maggie Wall this report on both the state's fish tax and the borough's resource extraction tax that covers fish, timber and gravel.

            As the Pacific halibut commission prepares to make drastic cuts in the total allowable catch in Alaska waters, there's been some debate over the whether to adjust the limit of halibut taken as bycatch by the trawl fleet. KMXT's Jacob Resneck has more.
