One of the beauties of summer....

For many of the special full moon events during this calendar year, we have had cloud cover and have been unable to see a good view of the moon.  That was not the case last Saturday night.

That first effort as the moon became visible.

With the close-up lens.

Thunder Moon is what it was called.  It was a couple of nights later before we heard any thunder, though.:-)

Were you able to catch a glimpse of the full moon this time?

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. Yes, I did catch several glimpses of that gorgeous moon, but I didn't take the time to take any pictures, so I thank you for sharing yours! Have a terrific Thursday, Sister!

  2. I love that second moon shot. I am glad you had a clear view this time! Beate was in on her visit last week and we were able to watch the full moon together for the very first time :)

  3. Yes, I went out and watched it rise. It was incredible. The page I read about astronomy said that August's super moon will be the biggest, so I am looking forward to that.
    Have a lovely day.

  4. Great photos, Nellie. We couldn't see it when it was low like that.. We have too many trees and hills... We saw it up HIGH --but it wasn't as pretty as yours.

    Have a great day/weekend. Hope you enjoy(ed) my Steam Locomotive blog post today... I'm so passionate about trains since my Dad worked for the railroad.

  5. I caught a couple or peeks of it too - beautiful.
