Waning Gibbous Moon Magic

Two nights in a row as I’m driving home, the night sky suddenly reveals a magnificent moonrise.

At first glimpse it’s surreal – so bright and a magnificent shade of gold. This is an unfiltered shot from tonight.

The Moon and Jupiter over Red Rocks

An evening at Red Rocks Amphitheater is a dream for many performers and concert goers. I’ve been fortunate to see a variety of performers there since I’ve lived in Colorado.

Sunday night, with Joe Bonamassa on the stage, we were treated to a second show in the sky. The waxing gibbous moon rested between Saturn (not pictured) to the left and Jupiter to the right. The first image was taken during the show from a lower row and the second was taken afterwards from the top level behind the seats. The point of reference provided by the Amphitheater is the same and gives great perspective.
