ugh, it's so completely overcast here in MD that there isn't a moon out at all. weather channel.com informs me that it will clear up later, hopefully i'll get a peek, too!

My son Kevin and i saw it last night..I thought it was out of the ordinary that we both came home from the Indian Casino with money...It was my birthday so I took us to the Buffet and then we each played $20.00 When he hit $40.00 he cashed out and put $20.00 in his pocket..I cashed out at $45.00 and we came home lol we played the nickle machine.

When I got up last night about 11:30, our back deck was very bright, so I knew the moon must be out.
What's the best time to look at it, Katie? I see what you see.

I don't really know, Connie. I just wander outside and look when the spirit moves me. I'm about to go outside right now to check on my outside kitties...Thelma, Tumble, Violet, Squeakers, and Miss Chiefy.

The first three always "escort" me on the porch. Actually, I think it's a ruse to get me to pet them.

Best time to view a full moon is at dawn, just before sun rise. It's very nice right now but it'll be spectacular tomorrow morning.

Just came in, Connie. It's beautiful. The sky is clear and there are lots of stars twinkling around it.

I even treated the outside kitties to a dish of warm milk in celebration. They slurped a nice "thank you."

I love gazing at the moon. Especially when it's bright like that and casts blue light on everything. SO cool.

15 years ago, the last time that the moon was this close, i was backpacking overnight.
i remember being able to walk around at night as if it were daytime.

sadly, it was mostly overcast here last night. good night, moon.

we had rain from lunch-time till lunch-time today, needless to say my cameras didn`t stand a chance :(

oh well, in 2023 my Daughter and unborn will be old enough to help me out (if the weather holds), so that`s something to look forwards too.
