Up on our homestead, every night tends to be clouded over. Seldom do we see a clear sky until after midnight. Quite honestly, I wasn't up to the idea of dragging myself out of bed at 1 pm in order to look at the moon. Instead, we hopped into the car and headed south, planning on driving to South Point 14 miles away. But along the way we noticed the sky cleared enough to reveal the moon. Fantastic! As luck would have it, we have a friend along that stretch of road, so we begged to come sit on her lanai for a bit of moon gazing.
Admittedly, cellphones make terrible moon photographing cameras. But snapped a couple and surprisingly they didn't turn out all that bad.
It was comforting and serene sitting on the lanai, chatting with a friend, and sharing the experience. I'll be remembering this super moon for a long time.
