Moon Watching for Skywatch Friday


This has been a week for enjoying the full moon which occurred on February 7th, but if you look closely at the photo above it is evident it is losing its fulness or roundness on its right side. this photo was taken at about 6 a.m. this morning, Atlantic standard time.
However , this losing of its fullness is not evident in all of my photos. This photo above; taken later in the morning, after my morning cup of coffee and internet searching, email checking activities ,ushered a bit of early morning moon beauty into my camera lens. Isn't it lovely viewed through the branches of our old tall maples which tower over our driveway and house?

Skywatch Friday is a long standing meme where sky views from all over the world are posted at:

The moon was pretty spectacular this week. That's what I chose too. I especially like the closeup with detail. - Margy
