Moon, Moon, What A Moon!

Two nights ago, I was supposed to be in the perfect location to view and photograph the fantastic moonrise over Cincinnati.  However, strong thunderstorms decided to upset those plans, so I remained indoors and dry.  But, it was only a little more than two hours later, around 10 PM, that the clouds were clearing out and I’d be able to take a somewhat “super moon” pic or two.  I wasn’t disappointed.

In four weeks, there will be a real “Super Moon” which is when the moon is closest to earth in it’s yearly orbit and directly after the full moon will be a total lunar eclipse which will be visible over the Eastern/Central U.S.  Yes, we are in the perfect place for this coming total lunar eclipse, when only lights from earth will light up the moon, because the earth will block the Sun’s light and the moon will glow an orangish color.  I can’t wait!

Owls And Full Moons – What Could Be Better?!

If you’re going to take a picture of a full moon, what would be better than an owl, a creature of the night, highlighting that picture?  So, without further ado, owls and full moons!

Now THAT’S what I’m talking about!

Beautiful Owl

What a beautiful creature!

Full Moon Rising (Video)

I’ve taken a “leave of absence” to take a little better care of me.

You see, I’m disabled due to injuries suffered in 1977, when I was in the U.S. Marine Corps and a few years ago, those injuries decided to haunt me.  I won’t get into the details, but there were a few times that I was close to death.  I didn’t die!  That just means I’ve been given more time to haunt my friends. What else are they good for anyways, right?

But this past Polar Vortex winter was really tough on me and I was a complete shut-in for most of it and that’s not a good thing.   In any case, I’m back to … “normal”, whatever that would be.  And, I’m nothing but trouble to those who actually love me.   Of course, I love them, too!

So, this is a really great video of the moon, a really nice full moon, rising and people in the distance being the silhouette.  So, watch it and enjoy it.  It’s about 3 1/2 minutes long and there’s some music with it.

Our Recent Super-Moon Event

Look!  Up in the sky!  It’s a bird!  It’s a plane!  No, it’s Super-Moon!

Is this incredible?  I’ve never seen a photo of the moon looking like this!

Moonrise 4

Is this jetliner orbiting the moon?

Moonrise 5

I’m half-expecting to see the kids from E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial flying through this moon on their bikes!

Moon Kissing Ocean

And this one reminds me of a Tom Hanks movie, Joe Versus The Volcano!

Superman? No, Super Moon!

If you’re like me, you might be a casual fan of astronomy.

I love learning a little bit more about something in the cosmos and the amazing beauty in our universe.

So, tomorrow night, there will be what’s called a Super Moon.

And, this is a helpful video that can explain the details.  Enjoy!
