Living on Hilton Head is truly a gift when any astronomical events occur, because the night sky is clear and stargazing is unhindered by smog and streetlights. And with all the excitement recently about the moon being so big and full this past weekend, I made a point of looking for it every night and checking it out from various angles. It was a beautiful sight, and for those of you who have been living under a bucket in a cave for the past few weeks, the news media tells us that the moon has not been this close to the earth in over eighteen years.

I have to say, I enjoy the morning moon setting over the marsh as the sun rises across the golf course, almost as much as I like the evening moon. Today, I was finally able to get a couple of shots of that lovely sight while walking my dog, Sam.
