Perigee Moon Rise

Hot off the camera, here’s an image of tonight’s Perigee Full Moon. I’m embarrassed to say how/where I grabbed this image. Let’s just say, ALWAYS carry your camera with you!

Did you get out and shoot the moon tonight? Please share your images and links below in the comments.

February Full Moon

Why was it tonight, no matter who we talked to, they’d ask “Where’s Gregg?” and “Is he out shooting the moon right now?”

Yes I was!

From the comfort of my closet’s window sill, that is!

Lunar Eclipse

Kind of convenient that my 8-year old daughter is studying stars and planets in school right now and this Lunar Eclipse “happens” to occur now. She wanted to view it, so I woke her up at 12:30 (after checking outside myself to make sure the clouds had dissipated, and viola. What a beautiful sight!
