    2. Went outside, after dark, and it was really beautiful.
      Couldn't see with the naked eye the center point or sections. So, I enjoyed your picture,

      Delete
    3. Oh, I can't see that with the naked eye, either...but I sure think those details are neat. Like I said on another comment..it's like God spun it on the tip of his finger as he created it.

  6. Hubby and I went to dinner *I had a salad...3rd. nite in a row* anyway I said to hubby, I wonder if Miss Betsy will snap a pic. of this beautiful moon. I dropped by to ask if you had seen the moon tonight. And here it is. It was so beautiful driving home with the misty clouds drifting over then on by.

  8. Is it still out there?

    I went to check and found it was hiding in the tree. The coyotes were yipping in the orchard... I don't like them. They're scary.

    1. It's still there. :) Do coyotes howl at full moons?

      Delete
    2. I don't think so. Coyotes hunt at night and their frenzied yipping is not pleasant. I would not want to be a rabbit in the orchard at night.

      Delete
    3. Ew. Yeah...we have coyotes just outside the village. My friends that live more in the country have them...yucky. They've lost pets to them before and wake up to them hanging around the house.

      Are you feeling groggy? ha.

    2. haha well you said you were far away
      And there was no smog at your bay

      Delete
    3. It's true...no smog
      or my moon would be in a fog!

    1. haha...well, you're very observant while up at night. I don't even think I open my eyes when I have to make a midnight run. lol....

  12. I knew I could count on you! I went to the top of the lookout tower at the state park, but it was very hazy here. I don't think I got any photos near as beautiful as this!

    1. I got lucky....it was very clear here and it wasn't hiding behind trees!

  13. It is funny how when I first look at the picture it somehow reminds me of a cantaloupe instead of the moon. I honestly never knew the moon had a center point and sections like that. You really do take the best pictures of the moon. I have never tried to do that with my camera. It seems as if I just use my phone camera for pictures and am too lazy to keep my regular camera charged. Heck I have so many cameras that I never use. I really need to make some effort and know it may never happen until all this shoulder pain goes away. Really big sigh!! Still love the beautiful moon pictures you take and wonder why my moon never seems as large but then again we can barely see any stars due to all the city lights. Love the stars in the desert and there are like 100 times more then we can see in the city. You are so blessed.

    God bless.

    1. It does look like a melon...exactly! And that center point..it's almost like God spun it on his finger to create it. Yes...I am blessed! We're out in the country so the stars are bright. I bet in the desert, it's amazing!

  19. No, darn. I missed it. We had some stuff going on and when I checked it was just a big white moon :-( - Maybe next time I'll catch it with my new camera.

    Cheers and boogie boogie.

    2. Darn. Clearly I have to strike while the iron is hot. I hope it is enjoyed by the purchaser. And if they renege on the deal... ;-) think of me!

    3. ok...I will! Wasn't it beautiful! I loved it!

    4. Very beautiful. And I adore peridot - I have a couple rings with that stone and the pendant would have been perfect with them. Ah well... who knows what you might find in your next estate foraging.

  24. The moon was mystical, magic ... I celebrated my 72nd birthday ... my dear friend Dawn (only 48) died. Ovarian cancer. I was able to spend an hour with her ... a day I will never forget. When I look at a moon like last night's I will forever think of Dawn.

    1. I must say Dawn was lucky to have a friend like you....I'm sorry you lost her so young! Happy belated birthday! You are incredible and so giving...love that about you. But you shouldn't lie about your age....you are much younger than that! :) xo

  25. Awesome photo. I have never seen such detail on the moon before. It's big here right now but not so clear as that. I have no idea how you get such great pics. Mine never come out well.

    1. thanks, jenny! You have to hold your breath, wait until your hands are perfectly still and relax. I have to take 5-6 to get a good one, though. I love all that detail, too...it's incredible!
