The moon and Venus

A waxing crescent moon and Venus, in the west-southwest part of the sky shortly before sunset on October 3, 2016.  The two brightest heavenly bodies in the sky reflecting the light of the sun.  A pretty sight to see at the close of the day.

Lovely Moon

“So imagine that the lovely moon is playing just for you – everything makes music if you really want it to.”  ~Giles Andreae

Moon through the pine trees

I stepped out my back door the other night and was pleasantly greeted by a big, bright full moon shining down at me through the trees .  Sometimes all you can say is “Wow!!!”  🙂

The moon, like a flower
In heaven’s high bower,
With silent delight
Sits and smiles on the night.
~William Blake
