Skywatch


Nearly full "Pink" moon setting this morning behind a pair of saguaro cacti reminiscent of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial's long fingers.  "I'll be right here."

Never have figured out how you get the moon to look so large in your photos. I love it.

Hi Nature Ram, Glad you liked it! The moon was close to the horizon making it look big and more colorful.

Wow!!! We didn't see the moon this week. It has been very hazy. Because of that we missed the lunar eclipse yesterday. My son was so disappointed :(
