Hello

Sun says goodnight.
Darkness says hello.
The moon smiles at us.

Okay

Okay, so I’m outside getting some air. It is late, like 11:55 night late. A neighbor of comes out, and says,
“Nice Night.”
Me: “Yes it is, and a delightful one.”
He: “Nice and warm.”
Me: “Yup.”
He: “The moon looks nice too.”
Me: “In all its glory.”
He: When he decided to go back inside, he said, “Have a good day.”
Me: Why say that, when the time according to my phone reads 11:59 PM. I mean the day is already shot to hell. In another 60 seconds a new day will start. So why didn’t this moron wish me a good day then, instead of say, 10-11 hours earlier, when the day was still in its earlier stages. It would have picked up my spirits, feel lively, full of piss and vinegar, the cats meow, the bees knees, do an Irish Jig. But no. It never happened. Such is life.

Not Quite Dark

An evening photo of downtown. It was not quite dark, but you can see the full moon just above the right hand corner of the brick building, which is on the left.Evening May 14 2014

Moon

The moon is in its Waxing Crescent phase, which is 32% illuminated. Believe me, the moon is in the photo. Shortly after 6:00 pm, it was 31F, -0.6C. Not too bad for the first week of December.

Moon – Waxing Gibbous

I thought I’d give it a try, taking this photo of the Moon, during its Waxing Gibbous phase, which is 90% illuminated. It was taken on Nov. 13, and it was 29F.
