~~~Simply the MOON~~~

I am up at my daughters watching the boys for the weekend... Friday night we went out looking at Christmas lights which I will post later and to dinner... You all know how I feel about the moon... I am a freak that keeps up with all the phases of the moon and gaze up at it all the time... I am a MOON watcher... Well if you didn't see it last night you miss a phenomenon that was spectacular....If the full moon looked unusually large, it was not your imagination – it was reported that Friday night’s full moon was the biggest and brightest full moon to be seen for 15 years. I managed to get a photo of it while we were out.... Isn't it magnificent... Hope you got a chance to see it and like me did you HOWL at the moon???

We did see it and it was beautiful and big. I knew that to and I also enjoy getting out there and watching the things going on in the sky. I like sitting up for the shooting stars. Its amazing the things that go on in space..well worth the loss of sleep.

Yes, we were commenting on how big it looked. The next day on TV, they said it was becuase it was closer to earth than usual. It was beautiful to see and on such a clear and beautiful night too.

Hugs,
Chris

I didn't howl, but I did notice how beautiful it is.

You captured a great picture of that shiny moon. Gorgeous...my husband said it was very bright when he was driving to work in the early am hours on Saturday.

I missed it....darn.

Sharon said...

You got a wonderful picture!! I did happen to see that moon and it was spectacular. Think I remember the reporters saying the moon was closer to the earth because of its position in its orbit and that's why the moon looked so big. I think God just gave us a little treat!!!

Stacey said...

I blogged about the same thing! Great minds think alike. :)

The moon could have been 10 times that size and it wouldn't have burned through all these rotten storm clouds! It sure was pretty...I'm glad someone could see it!

Ginger said...

Wow that picture you took is amazing. I didn't see the moon (I don't go out after dark, lol).
I bet it's nice and warm in Florida today...wanna trade? I can't get warm today.

Evening, Precious One! Oh, I saw that moon last night. We were on the road coming back from our son's house ~ and I was trying to stick my head out the window while driving to look at it! It was beautiful! Now, when the moon is full you really have to be careful...vampires, werewolves and gals during their 'time'! I can't belive I just said that! lol
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Donna Marie said...

What a great picture you shot! I went out to let my dog out and the moon was so bright, it looked like a giant spotlight in the sky! I tried to take a picture but it didn't come out very good. Yours is terrific! :)
