So, a Super Blue Moon won't happen again until 2037 so I thought I'd best get out there and try 'shooting' the Moon last night.
It wasn't blue at all, but orange and rippled on the horizon from the atmospheric distortion. To the left is a farm's silo that is on the other side of the Kickapoo River and on the ridge about a mile away. I was surprised that I could actually see it as the moon rose.
On that ridge there are 4 cell towers which annoys the heck out of me because the blinking light and towers ruin most sunrise photos. Any...way...
Below I tried shooting the moon through a distant tree. It sort of worked, but it was a fun effort.
I headed towards home but found one last spot where I could get a clear shot of it before heading back down into our hollow.
Two Super Moons in one month is a rarity. I missed the first one of this month, but am satisfied that I caught the last one!
At home these guys were looking for the moon too! Apparently, even NED-B grabbed a Lego camera.
At least none of them have cell phones!
Yesterday morning was a cool enough day that Charlie and I did one of the longer KVR trails. It has been a few weeks since we took a new trail on.
This one is an out an back Lollipop loop which ended up being 4.95 miles. To his credit, short legged Charlie just chugged along like nobody's business. Here we stopped for a drink of water. Charlie likes to drink out of a peanut butter jar lid.
