What a beautiful sight...

I wonder how many of you saw this same moon on Wednesday night? I just had to pull out my camera! It's times like this that I really wish I had a fancy-schmancy type of camera, because these pictures don't do the beautiful moon justice. The clouds were just perfect. Of course, there is a scientific explanation for all of it, but I just thought it was beautiful. I could get lost on Google looking at moon images.
Shoot the moon!

"How like a queen comes forth the lonely Moon From the slow opening curtains of the clouds Walking in beauty to her midnight throne!"~~George Croly

"Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”

"Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon."~~Walter De La Mare Silver

“When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator."

“The day, water, sun, moon, night - I do not have to purchase these things with money.”
~~ Titus Maccius Plautus

The moon was VERY pretty last night! We came out of our church service and I stood there exclaiming about it in the parking lot with my sister looking at me strangely. haha But it was so pretty...

Beautiful photos! Unfortunately it was too cloudy at our house to see the gorgeous full moon.
