Afternoon Moon


I took this shot of the moon fairly high in the sky day before yesterday in the afternoon about 3PM. I have seen a daytime moon many times before but never one so bright in a brightly lit afternoon sky.

How beautiful and as you say, unusual to be so bright! What a great and lovely shot!

You're so sweet. I'm sick today and about ready to climb back in bed and call it a day. But I'm very happy to have you as a regular visitor. Maybe you and I can convince these whippersnappers that the aged ones really are worth listening to.

You're not that old.

Utah Savage said...

Says who?

Utah Savage said...

Sounds like someone who might actually know me. My name at least. So how old am I? In my soul a rebellious teenager. I my body 110. Split the difference?

Ha ha, you're all old. Never trust anyone from the moon.

Wait, anita, you want snow? Be still my dead heart.

I love looking at the moon with a telescope. Once, before all the suburbs and everyone feeling the need to have lights in the yard to show off the landscaping I would take my telescope and look at that ancient surface. I would love to have a rover and explore it. Yeah, further examples that I'm a space cadet.

Why oh why doesn't Okjimmmmmmmm like me? I read him all the time and even comment, mostly in a semicivilized manner. Do I stink? How can he tell? Is it cause I don't drink beer and never have jelly donuts around? Just wait till I make Grand Canyon Cake from my Christmas copy of What Trash Cooking. Some one is getting me a copy, right? Right?

Randal, if you keep this up I'm going to start necking with Anita too. I so can ruin all your romantic fantasies. Set em up, I'll neck with every one of them. Nothing personal Anita. We can Neck anytime, with or without Randal around Anita, but when there is an opportunity to dash his hopes.... Well, how can I resist?

DCup said...

That moon really is bright for daytime. They usually look washed out.

Now about that necking.....

Utah Savage said...

Next up, some homoerotic orgasmic almost necking.

Hey UT if you wanna know WHY that moon is so freakishly bright, go see Dada's post from Dec 10. There's a link in his comments that explains EVERYTHING! I am watching the moon rising like a rocket right now. HUGE HUGE full moon will light up your backyard like a stadium tonight, especially if you have snow. And it isn't even officially FULL until tomorrow.
