Harvest Moon

The Harvest Moon rose yellow. I was still in August and David caught my error. Thanks, David. The full moon is on Saturday, September 10th, but the moon does not pass the meridian tonight. Therefore, is close enough for Rock and Roll to be considered full of itself.

Jupiter and three of its moons at 1:30 am this morning. I woke up and 1:30 am and remembered I had left the drip systems on, so I got up and turned off the drip system and photographed Jupiter. I forgot my iPhone, so I didn’t get any wide-angle photos of the sky at 1:30 am.

Studies In Lights & Skies

Spunk: “What’s this crap you are forcing on your viewers now? At least it’s more colorful than coyote crap!”

Loki: “This is how you make ‘Art’ Paparazzo. All you need is a sharp set of claws! Your Bazooka is lame when it comes to shredding!”

Sasha: “You’re making my eyes weird with those ‘Enlightened Stool Samples’ or whatever you called them.”
