SkyWatch Friday: 24 hours with the moon


These shots were taken beginning a little after 6 pm on December 8 and ending around the same time on December 9, 2011.

At first the moon reminded me of a print or pattern of some kind.

Then it came out of the trees for full view.

It began to look more like the sun although the night was dark.

A short while later it looked like it was on fire.

I went to sleep that night and woke up around 5 am and started to go back to sleep but looked out my window in time to catch the setting moon.

It seemed like the witching hour except it was morning, not night.

I had to grab my camera and try to capture what I saw.

Once the moon had gone to sleep, I went back to sleep myself for another hour or so.

That night I spotted the rising moon and took a few shots. I think the one below looks a little bit like a large egg in a nest.

I too was enchanted by the moon this week! Beautiful!!! I hope you will consider sending me an email about what you are grateful for to add to this year's gratitude word quilt. It will be posted on my blog on Dec 31st. I am collecting expressions of gratitude from around the world. Enjoy the weekend's skies, blue, grey, or filled with a pallet of many colors!
Gentle steps,
Laura

Marvelous photos, - what great captures. Thank you for sharing, - we missed most of the full moon and the eclipse because of grey and foggy skies, so lovely that you have shared these.

Judy said...

What a great idea! Following the moon for a full day! Of, course, that does mean that the clouds permit you to see the moon...
