Rarely do I get to take cool photos of clouds at night but thanks to the almost full moon back lighting this cloud (the Full Corn Moon was on September 6th) tonight I got my chance. This cloud looked just like a shark swimming around the sky. This was hand held and pretty much straight our of the camera – I cropped it a tiny bit.
About half way through the Harvest Moon eclipse on September 27, 2015.

This it what tonight’s moon looked like from my backyard.
The moon coming up over the Sandia Mountains at sunset. The mountain, the sunset and the moon: does it get any better?
The moon coming up over Sandis Mountain.
This is the April Full Moon setting over downtown Albuquerque.
The Full Moon in April is called the Full Pink Moon. They call it this because of the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest flowers of the spring.
They also call it the Full Sprouting Grass Moon and the Egg Moon.
If you were planning on doing something “in a Blue Moon” … last night was your chance. It was the 2nd full moon in December, hence A Blue Moon and the last full moon on December 31 for 19 years. 2009 had a Blue Moon send off and 2010 was welcomed in on a Blue Moon. I hope it is a glorious year.
It was really cloudy over the mountain the night of the full moon. Here is the moon ducking back into a cloud.
I took this photo last night. It was like there was a rainbow around the moon and it followed the moon on it’s journey across the sky.
