Last night we got a call from our son wondering if we'd looked at the moon? Hmmm.... let's see ... we were out driving after dark, but didn't remember noticing the moon. So, out in my fuzzy bathrobe I crept to see what was so interesting up in the night sky.
At first I noticed a full moon, but didn't think that was remarkable enough to warrant a call. Right then my husband said "wow, look at that ring around the moon!" It was a huge, perfectly round circle. I did my best to capture it in a photo, although I will admit moon photography is not a skill that I possess. Anyhow, I think you can see the ring around the moon up above ... can't you? Please say that you can :).
Did you happen to see it with your own eyes in your own night sky? We have never seen anything like it and were hoping that the weatherman would tell us more about it (as he often does), but he let us down. Maybe it's not that unusual and we just don't moon gaze often enough. I'm hoping one of my smart blog friends can tell me more about it as I know some of you are moon watchers and moon photographers. I suppose I could Google it, but that requires more effort than I'm able to muster in these days following Christmas. Speaking of Christmas, I hope you all enjoyed a memorable day.
