This iReport is part of an assignment:
Can you spot the ‘super moon’?
A Simply SOO-pah, SOO-pah Moon
Actually I find I'm really channelling David Frost this eve as I post these (imagine Frost's unctuous, slightly high-pitched whine -- sort of like the practiced voice of the seasoned campaigner -- as you read the following:
"Ladies and gentlemen, let me start by saying we have a simply SOO-pah, SOO-pah moon this evening... remarkable in every way, I can't say enough just how SOO-pah Earth's nearest satellite this evening...most devine in all categories, a steller, SOO-pah, oh so SOO-pah moon in every respect.
In fact, later in the program the moon's inventor, God, will come on to discuss how the myth that this SOO-pah SOO-pah moon is, in fact, made of cheese is precisely that. And afterwards He'll share some of His amazing secrets for keeping your skin soft and supple while warding off pestilence in sub-Saharan Africa -- so ladies, you'll want to stay tuned for that!"
The pix were all taken this evening in the southern part of Tulsa, OK. Clear sky, warmish temps but the "seeing" was awesome. I've also included one of Venus just as a plane came across during my time-lapse. There's always that one guy/plane/planet that has to get in EVERY photo.
