Super moons can deliver more than moonlight…

I’ve got my camera outside hoping for a glimpse of the super moon, but the high cirrus blurs itself across the moon’s features.  I snap off a few shots anyway – after all it hasn’t been this close to the earth in years, and maybe I won’t be around for the next one.   There’s a planet up there as well and an ominous red tinge to the cloud…

  1. Great pics! I read that the moon was going to be closest to earth at 6:22 yesterday morning, so I woke the kids up at six to see it. We couldn’t observe it from our yard because of the trees obstructing our view, so everyone jumped in the car and, as we reached the top of a steep hill, we came upon a spectacular view…only to realize we forgot the camera. Oh well. LOL! At least we all saw it. It was beautiful!

  2. Love the ring around the moon. Down South here in the US, we always say a ring around the moon means precipitation is coming. Considering it is late fall, that only makes sense with our rainy season beginning.

  3. sMiLes.. reminds
    me of that Moody Blues
    Nights in White Satin Song
    and my favorite part.. the late
    lament.. perhaps worth quoting
    without regard to space.. here..

    “Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
    Watch lights fade from every room.
    Bedsitter people look back and lament,
    Another day’s useless energy spent.
    Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
    Lonely man cries for love and has none.
    New mother picks up and suckles her son,
    Senior citizens wish they were young.
    Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
    Removes the colours from our sight.
    Red is grey and yellow white.
    But we decide which is right.
    And which is an illusion?”

    iN my life.. at least..
    the oldest i ever felt/
    sensed then..
    was at 21 at
    80.. 47 at
    105.. now
    at 56 past..
    all of that..
    the youngest
    and so
    much oF it
    is both life
    and the way i move
    it.. connect it.. and
    create it now.. thing is..
    i have the opportunity to
    act it.. produce/direct it.. and play
    it.. with no masters now slaving my
    relative free will.. and that my friend
    is the amazing part.. living life with
    no human masters of being or book..
    and also reminds me.. i’m so glad there is
    YouTube.. as songs like this truly no longer exist
    in shallow tides of twitter verse never liGht or deep aByss..:)
