The Waning Gibbous Moon on September 2, 2015

Today is the 50th Anniversary, when Apollo 11 landed with three Astronauts aboard, on the Moon. On July 20, 1969 at 10:00 PM CST, Neil Armstrong announced, thatΒ he would make β€œone small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Happy 50th Anniversary, Apollo 11!

The Full Flower Moon 2019

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. πŸ˜‰

The Waxing Gibbous Moon In April 2019

The April Pink Moon is almost full.

Before the severe thunderstorm comes through North Texas tonight, the sky cleared up, and I could photograph the waxing gibbous Moon in the early evening hours. In two days, the April Pink Moon will be full. Of course, the Moon won’t be pink. It got it’s name from the Spring pink blooms at this time of the year. Hopefully, this weekend the sky will be clear for a perfect shot of the “Easter Full Moon”.

Luna And The Gas Giant (2)

This morning, the Moon and Jupiter “shined” bright in the sky. After I dropped off Sara at school, I took my camera and captured our natural Earth Satellite and the big Gas Giant in our frontyard.

Full Worm Moon 2019

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.
