I made a timelapse video of the April Pink moon moving through the clouds on Monday when it was 96% full. The more classic rock-style music in the video is reminiscent of what a slow-fingered guitarist might play in a guitar battle. The epic battle between Ralph Macchio and Steve Vai in the movie Crossroads comes to mind. Vai smokes Macchio in the battle, in my personal opinion, but in typical Hollywood fashion, Macchio, the underdog, wins the battle after the wild and crazy-looking Vai lays down his guitar and walks off the stage. Vai probably played the parts Macchio was supposedly playing.
The full moon is tonight, but it will be close to 8:00 pm before the moon rises over the mountains. Therefore, I will not get detail in the mountains when it rises tonight.
Pink Moon last night as the Bazooka saw it.

Starting Easter Sunday through Wednesday, April 12th, there will be a conjunction between Venus and the Pleiades. You can see the Pleiades above Venus on the right side of the middle photo and the left side of the photo on the right.

Very cool Timothy!
The time lapse video is so cool! I love it!!
Thanks, Liz. I’m happy you liked it.
You’re welcome, Tim.
Nice job with the time lapse video and great pink moon shot! I was out earlier taking photos. Beautiful night.
Well done, Timothy, the video came out very well.
My compliments for this timelapse, nice work !
I LOVED this Timothy. More ‘ battles’ pretty, pretty, please.
I’ll see what I can do. Thanks, Shey.
AWwww, you do lots Timothy, truly. I wnated to say that I love the guitar and I love the ‘racing’ moon.
Well I do manage to get a few things done. Although, it’s getting more difficult as time goes by.
I know but your keep going and that is something Timothy. You keep lots of us going here you know. x
I’m to help keep us going. Especially so many things are going to hell. They’ve given up on the handbaskets and gone to using dump trucks these days.
You are so goddamned right and it is a hell that will be regretted.
BUT where certain things keep the faith, you do that.
Thanks for the timelapse video of the April Pink moon and the link to watch that epic guitar battle. I’m going to check our local streaming services and hope to find the movie. I’m sure I’ve seen it, but I can’t remember a scene…
I hope you can find the movie. I never get tired of fool moons. Thanks, Herman.
Great capture. We saw it last night — it was rather impressive.
I’m happy you got to see it. Full moons are always beautiful. Thanks, Couriers.
Loved that time lapse video Tim.. and your music. 🙂
Cosmic! Like flying through space.
I enjoyed the video and your music, Tim! No moon viewing here for a bit. Clouds and rain in the forecast.
Thanks, Lavinia. Clear and warming up. It was 76 on Monday, and dropped into the 40s with high winds on Tuesday. 16 yesterday morning and got up to 50 in the afternoon. It was 27 this morning. The forecast is for 66 this afternoon. We are supposed to get into the high 70s and low 80s next week.
Your weather sounds as crazy as ours. Already into April here, and nary a blossom on the fruit trees.
That 16 degree morning did in our peach blossoms.
I imagine that would do it. The local Bi-Mart had fruit trees for sale, and one with a pink flower tag caught my eye. It was some kind of curl resistant peach. I think that is the problem with them here in the valley, peach curl. It’s a fungal problem. We are sort of a fungal heaven up here during the rainy season.
We don’t have a lot of trouble with fungus out here because it is so dry. As I mentioned, bores are a problem with peach trees out here.
Awesome video of that amazing moon!! 😍
I love the piece, Tim and the timelapse!
That pink Moon [so much detail!] is gorgeous and the night skies!!!!
I just saw it too through the clouds.
FANTASTIC!!! Love your video, love your music, love your photography.
Love the moon and cloud play with the funky guitar!
That pink moon is gorgeous as per the Bazooka.
Thanks, Dale. I’m happy you liked the video.
Wow, pretty amazing Tim. I loved the time lapse work. The pink moon is unbelievably gorgeous. You are such a multitalented individual. 🦋🌹
Thanks for these amazing photos and music accompanying our show of what’s to come!💞
You are welcome, Cindy.
Pretty in pink…we had clouds.
Brilliant Pink! Bravo??
However, your guitar is more amazing. Which guitar were you playing?
Thanks, Resa. It’s a strat-style guitar.
Nice! I like the sound.
I think I saw a video somewhere where a guitarist matched Machio’s fingering on the “riff-off” so you could hear what it would have really sounded like – horrendous ha. We missed the pink moon – glad you got some shots of it so I know what we missed – quite purdy.
Hollywierdos and their upchuck underdog stories. One reason I like French movies is they rarely fall for that crap. Too bad you missed old pinky. It was purdy.
