Last Nights Full Moon!

Did anyone else get a chance to get outside and see how big and bright it was? I thought it was gorgeous. Baldyman went and took these pictures for me so I could post them for those who missed it. It was the biggest and brightest moon of 2009 they say. It was so light out there--you almost could have sat outside and read the paper.

I went to bed and opened our bedroom curtains beacause it was so pretty. I could see the bird feeders from the bed, all the tree branches..I should have taken a picture of that also. Every time there is something going on in our skies, me and Baldyman will usually stay up late or get up in the middle of the night to check things out. We've sat on our deck many a nights watching for shooting stars, planets etc.

Its Sunday, I'm going to spend the day being a homebody, I hope everyone has a great day. This week brings us a deep freeze. It will be interesting to see just how cold we actually get!

Hi Dawn, Yes, I did see the moon last night, beautiful. I'm not much of a sky watcher, but I do love to see a big full moon. I saw where you dropped by and I wanted to say thank you for the visit. Makes me very happy :).Come by often and sign my guestbook sometime too, when you have the time.

Hugs,
Chris

I pointed it out to my family as it seemed like a really bright moon but I didn't know about it being the brightest.

Thanks for posting Dawnie. I forgot about it and didn't check outside. It has been snowing so much the last few days, it might have been too cloudy to see anyway.

What a great picture. I didn't see the moon last night. I also love taking pictures of the moon. Thanks for stopping by and saying "Hi!" Hope you stay warm this week. Connie

That is a truly clear and stunning picture at the top. I love the sky at whatever time of day so I would have loved to have seen this.

I think your Baldyman and I would make great nightwatching buds. I frequently take a walk outside to just look up at the stars or planets. I have some cool moon shots I may upload at some point. I will let you know if I ever do. :)
