The intrepid blogger Catalyst did something rare last night.

He ventured outside after dark.

With camera in hand he ventured into the darkness looking for signs of life.

He found only an eerie night at first.

But then.

"What light through yonder window breaks?  It is the east, and Juliet is the sun."

Bet you weren't expecting Shakespeare, were you?

Well, it wasn't the sun, nor Juliet.

It was the Supermoon appearing in the night sky.

It came up a peach colored orb and it truly was an amazing and wonderful sight.

Unfortunately my tiny camera was not up to the job.

This was about the best I could do.

So the Supermoon has come and gone and I scurried back into my abode to Judy's delicious French onion soup.

It must be French week at the Catalyst's home.

Tomorrow I'll show you the preparation of her Beef Bourguignon.

P.S. If you want to see some spectacular shots of the moon, take a look at these from my blogger friend Judy.


  1. I snapped a couple of shots, but like you, my camera's good for a lot, but not astronomical shots.

    Beef bourguignon would suit me nicely about now!

  2. Email me, if you will and SWIMBO permits, the recipe for the french onion soup. Never tried it, but would like to....

  3. Thanks for sharing, especially since it's pouring here in Portland so I can't see it.

  4. We had clouds here last night, and intermittent rain, so I'm glad I saw the almostSUPERMOON the night before, when it was just a skosh short of its fullness.

  5. Our supermoon pooped out amidst the clouds.

  6. I didn't get any shots of the big moon but I did see it come up over Camelback Mountain. It was a wonderful thing to see. I do a pretty good Beef Bourguignon too and it's the perfect time of year for it. I've never attempted onion soup and I love a good French onion soup. I should give that a try one day soon.

  7. It was definitely worth venturing out after dark to see. Like you, I rarely go out after dark these days. Thanks for the link.
