Across the heavens

Stretches a banner of fire

Blazing summer sun

All day I enjoyed the presence and the heat of the Summer Sun that has once again visited my area in the Pacific Northwest. I love summer and sunshine!

Last night that summer sun left us in a blaze of fiery red, orange and yellow glory, stretching across the western horizon like a banner. It was amazing to see the beauty of it!

I was able to capture it with my cell phone camera but the picture just doesn’t show the full depth of its intense color.

May’s big “Flower Moon”

Blooming in the eastern sky

Year’s last Supermoon

“A super moon is the result of the full moon coinciding with the moon’s closest point of orbit in relation to the Earth, which is known as perigee. The result is that the moon is not only full, but looks closer to us and brighter than usual. On average, a super moon is seven percent bigger and 15 percent brighter than a full moon.

The May Super Flower Moon is the last super moon this year.”
