Sky Watching In March

March is one of my favorite months to enjoy looking at the sky. Lots of crisp windy days with a lovely blue covering overhead. To me there is something romantic about a daytime moon. It's always a surprise to look up and see one.
“The future is like the daytime moon, a diffident but faithful companion, so elegant as to be almost invisible, an inconspicuous marvel.”Robert Grudin

That same day provided wispy clouds above the trees and a perfect day to capture contrails.


"What was most significant about the lunar voyage was not that men set foot on the moon but that they set eye on the earth."
~Norman Cousins

I love the big, puffy clouds we are getting...and love flying a kite in the spring. Haven't did that in a few years, but we used to always get one and take the kids some place...now we have Lorelei.

I agree that a daytime moon is often a surprise, even though it's actually fairly common. Great photos of the supre moon.

Beautiful Carletta -- I took a picture of that daytime moon while we were on a boat trip, maybe the same morning last week.

My supermoon pix weren't much good.
