Mister C and Master J were out getting new hiking boots for Master J this evening and on the way they called me to tell me about the moon. They said it was copper colored. Now of course I rushed right outside to see this copper moon and was sorely disappointed to see no moon at all. They must have been driving out in the open to see this moon because my view was blocked by my neighbors houses. I kept checking back and front until eventually I saw it creeping over a nearby rooftop. Unfortunately by the time I saw it, the nice copper color was gone. But it was still a pretty neat moon. So I put on my telephoto lens and set about trying to take a decent pictures. After nearly thirty shots, I ended up with two that I didn't hate.
It really was much better in person.
