Solstice and the (almost) full moon

As the shortest day of the year turns from daylight to darkness, the moon rises.

This beautiful gibbous moon, just one day shy of a full moon, brightens the night. This was the inspiration for Aliana Reaches for the Moon.

Look for more photos of the moon tomorrow.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.

  1. Hi Laura, well this evening I’ve been looking through my telescope up at the moon, and even though a little tricky I took some photographs through the telescope eyepiece….……… they’re ok, lol will never make it into a copy of ‘Nature’ but I’ll post them tomorrow. Viewing was a little problematic simply because of the amount of water vapour in the sky and the wispy clouds floating by. All good fun 🙂

    1. It’s interesting to try new things with the camera and occasionally even editing. I try not to post altered photos except the occasional lightening up so it’s clearer. Not colors of sunrise or sunset, because it’s unnecessary. I can’t wait to see them.
      What does the A stand for? In my mind, it’s Alan.
