Saturday evening at 10:15pm in western Washington
We took a little drive south to Olympia about 7:00pm. When we came out of the Wal Mart at 8:15pm the moon was bright pink. I'm thinking it may have been the sunset reflecting on it. I had my camera and tried to get a picture of it then but there was just no place I could get an unobstructed view of it.
Linda down in California took some awesome pictures. My camera is only a 3.2MP so mine aren't as good as hers. She called it a sturgeon moon and I Googled "sturgeon moon" and sure enough that's what it's called~goes back to the Native Americans who called it that because August was the month that they caught more sturgeons. September's full moon will be a "harvest moon." (Reminds me of a song)
Thanks Linda for the idea of "shooting the moon."
