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!

Owl & Moon

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!

A Rose Is A Rose!

Rosette Nebula

Continuing the “outer space” theme of the moment, this is called the Rosette Nebula, and you can see why.

And, this is the Red Rose of Saturn, which is a huge storm on the planet.

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!

Stairway To The Top Of The World

Mount Ai-Petri - Crimea - Ukraine

Of course, how would you see the sunset from above the clouds if you didn’t take the stairway?

This is Mount Ai-Petri, in Crimea, Ukraine, and what an amazing view!

Big Is Beautiful, Too!

Pillars Of Creation

This is an iconic photo by the Hubble Space Telescope called the “Pillars of Creation”, the Eagle Nebula picture taken many years ago and always worth sharing.
