Waiting For The Moon

We were riding through Valley Forge Park at dusk Thanksgiving on our way home from visiting with an aunt and uncle, and we saw the moon rising over the hills.  We continued to a spot on the far side of the park where the moon was again visible and we waited for the moon to rise above the tree line.  

It was quiet and peaceful waiting for the earth and moon to move so we could get a few photos. I did not have the best camera for nighttime photography, but I am happy with the few shots that turned out.

I've watched many sunsets and sunrises in Valley Forge Park but never a moonrise I can recall. I feel confident I know exactly where you were when this was taken. Thanks for the memory Gloria!

It was lucky Kathy Streib !  Thank you.  It was a treat to see it rising and we were not in a rush to be anywhere.

Thank you Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD .  Yes that was Thanksgiving evening.

You are welcome Kevin J. May . This was just off the parking lot for the airplane club. Did you guess right?

Thank you Joe Pryor !

Gosh thank you for the Feature Myrl Jeffcoat !  One of these days you will get it! I could not help but think of ET when I was looking at the photos with the trees over the moon.

Yes it is Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 .  A moment that might not happen ever again also.
