A loony post!

What is that strange object???

Ahhh, it's just the moon striated by cloud layers.

Here you can see it rising over my town.  It's called a Super Moon because it's the closest it will be to Earth for the next 18 years.

A little later, in my backyard, the moon is a bit higher and framed by some mysterious shapes.

Not that mysterious, once I put some light on the shrubbery.

Ah, La Luna.  The moon.  A serene goddess, cloaked with mystery.

And last night we had pizza, too!

Bruce, good for you.

We were going to go out and try for some moon shots but the clouds put a damper on it and we stayed in. You got some good ones and the clouds ad to the scene. You are right, cloaked with mystery.

Judy, when I saw some of the shots taken with very long lenses today and displayed on the Internet, I was nearly ashamed enough to take mine down. There's a collection of about 13 photos on the Guardian web site you might want to check out.

I like the one over your town best... it's kind of spooky :)

Dawn, I agree with you. Normally I would crop out the town lights but in this picture they seemed to add to the scene. Thanks for looking.

Dog breeds including the Australian Cattle Dogs and the Portuguese Podengo Medio are typically the types that enjoy digging earth. Since they sleep in the daytime, you can bond with them by letting them sleep in your pocket, but don't sit on your glider!
