Looking to the Sky

The skies this time of year amaze me. When going about everyday tasks, I’ll turn around and say, “wow!” Somehow the blue seems bluer and the white seems whiter, and colors we don’t see at other times of the year dance furiously as the sun rises and sets. Squirrel! This was just a few hours […]

2021 A.D.

Oh, for more time to blog. 2020 was, in the words of a 9 year-old quoted in the media, like looking both ways before you cross the road and getting hit by a submarine. There were many blessings; for those I am grateful. I also feel like 2020 added on an extra 10 years. But […]

Storm’s Comin’

Have you ever been driving along and are suddenly so awed by what you see rolling over you that you stop to take pictures? I went eastward down a side street to capture the utter darkness of this immense cloud in Snohomish County tonight. This inky denim-blackness looked like it was going to swallow the […]

Pink Super Moon

Standing on water, watching the Pink Super Moon rise, a guy jamming on a Flutophone while sky watchers flit around in their bank robber chic attire… yes, it was an epic night. Watching this moon come over the eastern horizon was a transcendent experience. As we carefully spaced, socially distanced sky watchers were hyper focused […]

Lleuad, Mawrth, a Iau

Did you see it? The crescent moon was flanked by Jupiter and Mars this morning before dawn with Saturn off to the left. The moon was so large and buttery and the planets so bright that it was surreal. It seemed like an epic scene out of a science fiction movie set in another galaxy, […]

Fullmåne

The Algonquian are credited with calling this moon, or tibik-kėzis, the Worm Moon. Tonight we were dazzled by the Worm Moon Super Moon, aka the Worm Super Moon. Even the shots when neighbor doggie with cataracts was getting tangled up in the tripod, which are not very focused, are captivating. Collective Evolution just posted a […]

Perelandra

Both the humans trembled– Merlin because he did not know what was coming, Ransom because he knew. And now it came. It was fiery, sharp, bright and ruthless, ready to kill, ready to die, outspeeding light: it was Charity, not as mortals imagine it, not even as it has been humanised for them since the […]

Faux Blood Moon?

WOW. I was just coming home from the store and had to stop to take pictures of this gorgeous rising moon. I couldn’t quite get a steady shot, even balancing the camera on a fire hydrant, but you can see why I was in awe. We aren’t due for another blood moon yet, but this […]

Moonrise Monday

This is magnificent. The magic continues. I was astounded by the size of the moon as it came over the eastern horizon tonight. Supermoon: The Legend Continues. We are having unseasonably warm clear weather here, which isn’t helping our drought, but is providing utterly glorious views of the night sky. If you’d like to know […]
