How awesome Mr. Bill! Very beautiful!

Lilun always loves to look up at night and try to count the stars. He does NOT believe that the satelites are up there...lol He is so cute when he looks at me and says..," Nuh uh Mommy.. them stars and moons are all thats up there!"

I dont quite know anyone who has ever taken a picture so beautiful of the moon as this one you brought forth. Thank you

I wanna take pictures like that!!..but my camera won't let me. :(
Was that taken Wednesday of the celestial moon or whatever they call it?? I heard about it on the news that morning, and told Elizabeth we'd have to be sure to watch the moon rise..of course we forgot.

No...but that was certainly in the back of my mind. I took it about 11:10pm last night. I used a tripod and a 2 second delay for the shutter to click to allow the vibrations from pushing the button to subside. You should also know that I took about a dozen pictures and that's the only one that came out with any clarity. There were a lot of clouds in the sky at that time while the moon was rising and I had a terrible time trying to catch it without clouds in the way.

Does the moon last night have anything to do with the summer soltice?  I'm so dumb with that stuff, I need to know.

No, the summer solstice has to do with being the longest day of the year due to the angle the sun takes in the sky (or more accurately, due to the tilt of the Earth's rotation).

I agree there was something especially eye-catching about the full moon this time around though!
