The Full Beaver Moon 2019

 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.

The State Fair of Texas 2019

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.

The Full Harvest Moon On Friday 13th

The Full Moon on a Friday 13th is a rare occurrence. The last time, we had a Full Moon on a Friday 13th, was back in October 2000. The next time will take even longer, almost 30 years, in August 2049. Today’s Full Moon is also an apogee Moon with a distance of 252,511 miles (406,377 km). This is called a “Micromoon” and looks approximately 14% smaller than a “Supermoon”. The illuminated area also appears about 30% smaller, so it might look less bright in tonight’s sky. The next Full Micromoon will occur on October 1st, 2020, and then on Halloween 2020.
