This image of last nights sunset hints at just how humid it was. Moments later, intermittent fogbanks rolled past as I stood in the pulpit at the top of the Spacewatch 36 inch dome. This view towards the southeast shows the McMath Solar telescope on the southeast part of Kitt Peak against a background of low level clouds (fog at the altitude of the top of Kitt Peak) and higher cirrus still lit by the setting sun. A bank of lenticular clouds to the left almost look like a fleet of UFOs. This image was taken with the kit lens on my 20D at 18mm focal length. The exposure was 1/500 seconds at f/3.5, ISO 400.
