My travel and work schedule, combined with the weather - never seem to allow me an opportunity to see certain events such as meteor showers & super moons! I had a feeling things would work out though today! I woke up at 2:30 am with very little sleep to drive out of town a bit and onto the other side of the mountain range. I was rewarded with an amazing view that was better than any harvest moon I've seen! As the sun was rising behind me - but shielded quite a bit by the mountain range still - the sky was bright blue and combined with the atmosphere to create a very orange moon! To see it setting amongst the giant Saguaro Cactus of the Sonoran Desert made it even more majestic!
