The Full Pink Moon of April

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I LOVE watching the night sky and especially the moon. 

Since the sky was super clear tonight, I decided on a whim to hop in the care and try and catch the moon rising from a hilltop near my home.  I was soooooo thrilled to see it just rising over the hill!  It was a sight of grandness...a huge orange ball shining down on the valley below.  Oh, I could have just watched it for hours. 

I was able to get a few pictures, but had to cut the trip short due to a child (who demanded to come along) who was scared because we were standing in front of a 200 year old cemetery while the moon was rising...Bad mommy choice lolol. 

I really hope that some of you got to see the fabulous moon tonight, if not here are a few pics to give you an idea of what I saw.  These pictures in no way do the scene justice, but I hope you enjoy them anyway :)

  1. These are beautiful photos! I missed the moon rise and there were clouds covering it later on. I noticed a ring around it on Thursday night. Snow on the way tonight. Happy Easter!
