SkyWatch Friday Jan. 16th

January 15, 2009

When I first saw the disk, it was rising from the bed of clouds.  By the time I took the shot, the moon was above the clouds.  It was the transparent host raised reverently above the mountainous chalice.

    This is fantastic. A BEAUTIFUL, dramatic moon capture. (I have a tiny screen on this computer,so I was reading text long before I saw the picture. When you talked about the “disc” rising, I thought you had gone to Roswell!)
