The clouds parted in time for me to capture a few obscured photos and a few clear.
The first two photos are from Tuesday evening. These two photos are from Wednesday evening. Can you see the difference as it waxes to Friday’s full moon?
Following new moon the waxing crescent moon hangs in the western sky.
Eastern sky beauty morning and evening view Keep my eyes open
Braving winter chill we wait for the moon to rise – magical glow begins, backlighting nearby peaks until until until the moon in all its glory lights up the night sky.
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.
Sunset has a surreal glow. I’m forever seeing shapes in the clouds. The moon inspires, no matter its phase. Where we live, neighbors light up the tree at the top peak for December. Charlie turns ten months old!
