Still Stuck on the Moon
After jury duty yesterday I spent most of today on domestic chores around the house just to catch up. I did spend a short amount of time creating a new bird set up beside my photography blind. Checking on it through out the day I could see the birds and squirrels using it.
Tonights moonrise was a beautiful sight. It was a Waning Gibbous Moon. Roughly 96 percent illunminated by the sun. It had a strong yellow cast to it as the sunlight that was illuminating it was passing through the earths atmospere as it's not too far past sunset. A great way to start the evening watching the moon slowly rise into the night sky over the Mendocino Range.
God's love and blessings to all,
