The moon fascinates me. Absolutely fascinates me.
It’s the only celestial body we can see with any clarity (without the use of a telescope) and it changes so dramatically from day to day that, while it’s always the same moon, showing us its same face, it’s almost never the same.
I have previously posted pictures of the Supermoon, but here are a few shots I have taken recently that show our lunar neighbor in some dramatic ways, from a blood moon, to a moon waxing gibbous to a beautifully moody moon from early November 2014:
Not quite blood red, but stunning anyway!
They call it a blood moon, but since when was blood orange?
The ominous darkness threatens to engulf the blood moon
Is this the moon or the sun? (hint: it’s dark out)
I just love the term ‘waxing gibbous’ and that’s what luna was doing tonight
Looking almost as bright as the sun, the moon peaks out from behind some clouds
This was not a blood moon, but it sure looked moody
Shrouded like a bride before her wedding, the moon waits….
Just a small section of tree in the shot, but I LOVE how it looks
I sometimes wonder what the moon would look like if it had an atmosphere… maybe it would be something like this
I was so glad I managed to get the moon looking so bright yet still having such detail
The moon is always beautiful – just some times more so than others
