The Skyhouse Frisco Station and tonight’s Full Moon
Tonight’s Full Beaver Moon
The Full Moon is a bit hazy, tonight.
Beaver Moon, Frost Moon, Mourning Moon, Tree Moon
The trees stand dormant and naked. The Summer birds have flown south. The frost settles in or snow begins to fall. The beavers are busy making last minute preparations for the Winter ahead.
The November Full Moon is all about the final Winter preparations. It’s a time to bundle up and relax. A time to surround ourselves with things that will comfort and sustain us during the dark and cold that has so recently arrived at our doorstep.
After three years, we’ve visited the State Fair of Texas again. The weather was beautiful: sunny and perfect temperatures. Unfortunately, when it is as nice as it was yesterday, lots of people visit the fair. It was very crowded. So, we couldn’t go to all the places we’ve wanted to see. But we went late afternoon, and stayed until it was dark. The State Fair will be open until this Sunday, October 20th. Here are some images I’ve captured at last night’s visit at the Fair Park in Dallas.

Sturgeon Moon, Grain Moon, Green Corn Moon, Red Moon
The grain ripens in the fields and the sturgeons become plentiful in the lakes. The Moon takes on a red hue from the Summer haze. It is the beginning of the harvest season and the time to begin preparing for Winter.
Tonight’s Full Moon (07-16-2019)
Today is also the 50 Year Anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch to the Moon.
The May Full Moon 2019
Today, we had a few storms blowing through North Texas. But it cleared up enough to see the Full Flower Moon, this evening. Tonight’s Full Moon is also referred as a “Blue Moon”. Usually there are three Full Moons in every season. This Spring, we experience four Full Moons. Therefore the third Full Moon is also called a “Blue Moon”. The fourth Full Moon will be on June 17, which is four days before the Summer Solstice.
April Full Pink Moon 2019
Technically, we won’t have the April Full Moon before tomorrow at 6:12 a.m. CDT (11:12 a.m. UTC). But the Moon was shining bright until it got covered by clouds, and another storm came in tonight. There is a slim chance, I will get up in the early Friday morning hours. The girls have a four-day break from school. And Kevin took a day off as well. It is a good day to sleep in for another hour, than the usual time to start breakfast and get the kids ready for school. With over 99 percent full, the picture comes close enough. 😉
The March Full Moon is called Worm Moon, because when the soil thaws out and softens, the worms begin to reappear as soon as it becomes warmer. It’s the Earth’s rebirth after the hard Winter months. This year the Worm Full Moon is also the last Supermoon/Perigee Moon of 2019.
