Setting Moon

There have been some issues with the blog overnight, I learned this morning, so am not sure this will post, will post correctly or will persist in the corrupted blog database.

Don’t ask me. I just type here. I am hoping our ever-vigilant server buddy will be able to untangle the wires that the rats have chewed up and reconnect Fragments properly for the foreseeable future–whatever fiction that refers to.

So here is a morning shot just before the moon dipped below the treeline out my office window.

Why does it feel like Friday already? And what does that possibly have to do with the moon? Don’t ask me. I just type here.

  1. Count me in on Betty’s comment. I doubt that an astronaut, approaching the moon during one of the past landings could have gotten any more detail in a photograph. How tall was the ridge you climbed to get that shot, or what power was the telescope you shot the picture through? It is impressive Fred.
