The ever-present moon

We’ve been lucky enough to have great weather for this trip. This means that the sky is mostly clear and we have been able to track the moon’s phases. Last night when we got to Ft. Stockton TX, I thought I saw something odd in the eastern sky. It was a big full moon behind the clouds. Here’s the progression:

Then this morning, when Sam was walking the dogs he saw this same full moon setting on the other side of the field.

There’s nothing like a little moon magic to brighten up the Texas landscape!
