POTD: Beaver Moon 2021

Posted on Updated on

I got some really cool shots of the moon about eight hours before it was completely full (3:58am EST, November 19). Then, I got some shots of the partial Lunar Eclipse. That was so awesome considering that it was the longest partial eclipse since 1440. My stupidphone couldn’t do it justice (I need a real camera).

Previous Beaver Moon posts here & here. Spooky, spooky… ~Vic

POTD: Dragons

Posted on

Many months ago, I was gifted with an adorable dragon figurine from Momma Linda. I was moved to tears. She knows I love dragons. A few days ago, I was gifted with an additional dragon, as a pendant with a crescent moon. More tears. Thank you, again, Momma. Many hugs to you. ~Vic
