As I descended the stairs Friday morning I glanced out the window to see a beautiful scene: the Moon, a day past Full, was setting in the west. Luna was set in a dark but brightening sky, framed by trees still in leaf. I grabbed my camera, cranked open the window, and recorded a few shots. Then I hurredly dressed and headed off for the office. Heading east the brilliant glory of the morning’s sunrise struck me in my eyes and soul. Amazing! I pulled into the first parking lot that afforded any view at all –conditions such as these are so very fleeting– jumped out of the car and produced my “travel” camera. A fine way to start a day: a beautiful moonset and sunrise.
