Did you see this, May 19?

No photo can recreate the amazing vision of the moon with one of our planets, the evening of May 19, 2007. They were brilliant - my photo is not even a fraction as inspirational as this heavenly sight. I need to review my Instruction book for my camera, to learn how to take night shots. I hope you can see whichever planet that was to the lower left of the crescent moon.

Many years ago, I took an interest in astronomy - but frankly, the amazing-ness, if that could be a word, was overwhelming. Some nights I felt like nothing at all, gazing upward. And I can't even comment about the physics of it all - I am totally uneducated in that direction.

Another sky picture -- we are hoping those thunderheads will bring moisture.
