Super Moon

Did you see the Super Moon last night? Or even the one in October? I missed October's because it was cloudy, so last night with perfectly clear skies, I was ready. I wasn't sure exactly what time it was going to appear or where, but I took my camera along when I went out to feed cats, and lucky for me that was the perfect time. The perfect place for these shots happened to be from the hog barn where I feed the last ones, too. So here are my favorite shots, in the order I took them, completely unedited. (Click on any to enlarge.)


A little size perspective here:


Look closely on this next one. Below the moon and slightly to the right stood a deer. I didn't even notice it until I was looking at the pics on the computer. You might have to click on the photo to enlarge it to see better.



I managed to catch my neighbor going by on the road, too, on his 4-wheeler.



This last one I took a bit later from our driveway. The moon still looked huge over our neighbor's yard.


I hope you got to see the moon for yourself, since it's been about 70 years since it's been this close to the earth and looked so huge. If not, I hope you enjoyed these photos. Some year I'm going to get a nicer zoom lens for even better pics. Maybe. ;)

I've been sewing again, and I have a couple of new things to show you. So check back later this week.....

We missed it, it was rainy... It must have been great to see it from your place! We live in a mountainous area, so the Moon has to rise from behind mountains, but you can see it emerging from the horizon! Beautiful shots, I love the one with your neighbour!

Thanks, Megumi! Yes, we are blessed with quite a view here, in any direction!
