  1. Oh man, if I lived out in the country, I would be out there with my camera on Friday for sure. And then maybe a falcon would fly past…lol!

    I’ll have to remember to look outside to see it, though, even if I don’t have a good view for photographing it. Thanks for posting the info.

  2. My daughter woke me up at 6:30 wanting me to take one last look as the Moon was setting behind the trees. It was spectacular which was the only reason I woke up:)

  3. That would be worth waking up for! I saw a very beautiful sunrise last weekend. I couldn’t sleep, so I got up and had a lovely view of a glowing red sky.

    Probably a good thing you woke up early to see the moon. I just looked at the forecast, and at least here, it’s going to be cloudy. So I don’t think I’ll get to see it.

  4. 6:30 is not my favorite wake up time. The days prior to that I had trouble sleeping too so I was really dead tired when she woke me up…but it was worth it. It was beautiful and Lexx has loved the Moon since she was a toddler, I was glad that at 18 she still wanted to share it with me.
