We had several prettier pictures of the perigee moon from March 19, but I chose this one because it made me laugh. It looks like the moon is so bright these people are shielding their eyes from it! Either that, or they're about to be beamed up into a moon-like spaceship. In reality, someone had just turned their headlights on.

This was taken at Bloedel Donovan.

Skywatch Friday


  1. It does look like a spotlight on them...yes, one of those beams from a spaceship. The moon is awesome, but does play second fiddle to what's happening with the people. Great choice!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Clever! The moon sure made for a bright reflection. Beam me up, Scotty! Have a great weekend.

  3. Ha! That was a good catch. "Take me to your leader".
