The moon is white tonight and I can see the stars, but last night the smoke blotted out the stars and turned the moon orange. While I was out photographing the moon from the front porch about 10:30 last night, I felt a presence, like someone was watching me. I looked up at the roof and could see the outline of pointy ears, so I pulled out my flashlight and there was an alien looking kitty staring at me. I thought the kitty would have run off since the light shining in its face, but it sat there intently looking at me while I talked to it. It didn’t act afraid at all, since it was out of my reach.
We went out to look at wild flowers and the landscape where we watched the eclipse last week. We were planning to go out yesterday, but it was too windy. Since we just got home, and I don’t have time to go through all the photos tonight, therefore, I’m only posting a photo of Mount Taylor at sunset, with the giant windmills at the base of the mountain shinning in the low sun, and a cow I photographed in the twilight on the way home.
