not easy to hold the camera still

I find the moon both mysterious and beautiful, and tonight it was also a bit strange....

By coinsidence I looked out and got a glimps of the moon just hanging a bit over the treetops. I thought it was so beautiful and found my cam and shot some pics of it.


Then I went back in and spent some time on the computer. After about 20  minutes, my Mom called... have you seen the moon, she asked. I said I had, wondering why she asked me about the moon. It's not like she calls me and talks about the moon every now and then... lol...
But then she said;  "it's almost gone".  I was thinking how weird that was, since I had just been out and it was almost full.

 

So with my Mom on the phone I looked out, and she was right. In just a short time, it had nearly dissapeard.

almost full...
I haven't heard that there were to be an eclipse of the moon and neither had my Mom. She had even checked the internet to see if it was meant to happen, but couldn't find anything. Guess it's just one of those mysteries we can't find an explenation to...

I went back out with my cam and shot some more pics of an ever smaller moon... or rather, the moon stays the same size, but the shone was almost gone... :o)

 

(As it is very dificult to hold a camera totally still, some of the pictures turned  out pretty funny... lol )

 

Had I checked the internet myself, I would have found that there were indeed something about the lunar eclipse... oh well, the most important thing is that I got some nice pics of it all.. :o))
