from brightly lit sky
the moon swallowed by shadow
darkness covers me
Lunar eclipse photos from my balcony in the Rocky Mountains. I was fortunate to have a clear evening sky.
These photos were taken approximately every 5 minutes.
Early morning sky
Moon and Venus share spotlight
together they shine.
happy New Year and wishing you an inspiring 2019!
My word for 2019 is reach!
I’ve been thinking about this for a few days and had almost settled on something else, when I realized this is perfect!
Reach has many meanings:
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.

“In this charming STEM book, children will see how the light of the full moon inspires Aliana to create a present for her brother Gustavo which will surprise the whole family.”
