Moon Frown

Have you been reading about the Frown face that is showing up in the sky tonight? Jupiter and Venus are aligned with the moon in such a fashion that they look like the eyes and down turned mouth of a frown face. I couldn't get a decent shot, so I called out the pro. Here is DH taking a picture of the sky. It was completely dark outside, so I just trusted my digital to find him and poof! There he is...




This is what it looked like at twilight from our vantage point. This first shot has a bit more clarity to it, due to the amount of light still available...



About fifteen minutes later, we went back out into the front yard and tried again. The darkness kept the digital from focusing, but it really does give the "face" a cool look. In the picture I took of hubby, he is actually using an "old style" 35mm camera. We'll have to see how those come out.



Well, that's all for tonight. I put the second layer of texture paste on my project and after drying overnight I should be able to finish it up. So hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday, I will unveil my mystery project.

Take care.

Wow! That's cool! And great photography work. I'm glad you told me about it...I hadn't heard of that. I'll have to point it out to my kids!

I am so glad you took those pictures. I went outside to take a look and we had a cold front coming through, so the clouds blocked the view.
