Glorious Moon Light!—-Monday, November 14, 2016

“Most glorious night!  Thou wert not sent for slumber!”–Lord Byron

wood-pile-2

I climbed to the top of the woodpile…(down there on the end where there are four logs stacked on each other)—I needed to get above the neighbor’s corn field to see the eastern sky, you see.

novembers-super-moon-007Then There it was!  That most stunning Super Moon!
novembers-super-moon-011I stayed up on the wood pile— balancing carefully, while Boomer sat below whining, with Min-Min Cat winding her way up the very tall pile to be close to me.

novembers-super-moon-risinIt rose quickly showering the earth, with its silver glow, edged in pink from the setting sun.

novembers-super-moon-as-itStill lucky me— I got to see this wonderful, and unusually close to the earth moon setting in the western sky.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda

  1. OH: “you got it GOOD!” (we also stopped to see it “creeping” up and over the Mesa Rim). Is that Marcellina Mountain (or Peak)? I know/(well, suspect) that that is just the other side of Paonia, correct?

  2. As nice as your pictures are, I know that the real thing was even more impressive (because no one can really capture it!) and I wish I’d been on the log pile with you :-).

  3. I caught sight of it in the early evening, surrounded by sunset clouds, as we were heading home, but by the time I got back, the clouds were covering the sky. It was sensational, wasn’t it? Huge and pale and peaceful…

  4. Dear Linda and Boomer!!!
    What a moon!!! They say it hasn’t been this big in 68 years. This night we have nothing but clouds because the icy, clear blue weather we’ve had is about to change. In many parts of Sweden we’ve had lots and lots of snow, traffic has been terrible and the interstate was filled with cars on their roofs. You did catch that moon in the most beautiful way, I have to get myself a better camera. Until then I will enjoy your pictures and I am very glad that you had the opportunity to see this magnificent view!!! Blessings!!!!

  5. I can picture it all- the good balancing act, Boomer wondering what on earth is she doing, and Min- Min climbing higher to get a better look at you. I stepped out several times last night to have a look-see and then this morning going to work just after 4 AM was treated once again to that big ‘ol moon in the western sky. Thanks for sharing. PS: read chapter 19 in the book of Psalms, Old Testament scriptures.

    • David was an amazing Psalmist—
      The heavens declare the glory of God;
      the firmament proclaims the works of his hands.
      Day unto day pours forth speech;
      night unto night whispers knowledge.
      There is no speech, no words;
      their voice is not heard;
      A report goes forth through all the earth,
      their messages, to the ends of the world.
      He has pitched in them a tent for the sun;
      it comes forth like a bridegroom from his canopy,
      and like a hero joyfully runs its course.

      From one end of the heavens it comes forth;
      its course runs through to the other;
      nothing escapes its heat.
