Tonight...

...is the first night after the largest, brightest moon we'll see in all of 2009...



The weather is great here right now. Thanks to the infamous Santa Ana winds, it has been warm all day and remains comfortable tonight.

A few clouds -- plus the considerable amount of dust and smoke always in the air around here -- gave the moon a bright orange color as it rose.

It was a pretty sight, even considering the reasons.

I didn't even try to shoot it this time. I'm glad you and King of Pain did.

I completely forgot to get my ass out there and take a picture. I do need to procure a better lens for proper moon shots, however.

Wish I'd had a better lens and in fact a better camera, Ms Pillow. It's not too bad for a happy-snap digi, though....
