Under The Moon Of Love

View On Black

 

Well today is my Husband's Birthday (yes, that's right we're born two days apart) and on the way home from dinner I noticed this big beauty in the sky..We went back to the house grabbed my camera and headed back out so I could get a good shot lol ;) Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good shot from our house due to the many tall trees we have...... Once again, I took this photo through the sunroof of my car handheld no jimmjams this time. haha..I know I say this every time I post a shot of the moon...However, it always freaks me out that I can capture a decent shot with my little sony and the moon is sooooooooooo far away........so cool isn't it? When I began shooting the moon my goal was to wait for a full moon. I have learned it's the least interesting night to shoot the moon...as the details don't show up well on a full moon.

 

"Moon, Spica and Saturn in Virgo on April 26."

 

"Tonight, the almost-full waxing gibbous moon sits close to Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo the Maiden. The star-like point of light above the moon this Monday evening is actually no star at all but Saturn, the 6th planet outward from the sun."
