Moon Ablaze

with 2 comments

I needed to walk our trash bin down to the road last night, a trek that would normally have been time spent with Delilah. [sad face] The moon has been so bright the last few nights, I was looking forward to seeing if we would get another good viewing. As I crested the hill before the road, there was no moon in sight. 

It was too early. The sky to the west was speckled with clouds but I figured the moon would show through enough to see in the east.

By the time I had walked the rest of the way to the road and back to the top of the hill again, I turned to find the first hint of the rising moon. Having caught sight of it just as it appeared on our horizon, I decided to stand and watch the rotation of the Earth bring it higher in our sky.

When the full circle of moonlight was visible, I took a picture of how it looked.

It was as if it was on fire!

  1. Fantastic photos; I’ve never seen a moon rise like depicted! On another note, Portugal/Morocco and the England/France matches — That makes 3 for this year. Seems that I only watch when it is World Cu! I do miss the horns from the South Africa WC!

    • Yikes! I thought those horns made it hard to watch! High drama in these matches as the tourney progresses. I’m lovin’ it!
