Our attempt at the supermoon

Previously, the moon rose at 5pm. My husband and I went out to the prairie at 5pm only to find, after looking it up online, that the moon would not rise for an hour. So, for the first time in a long time, I had company watching the sun set!!!

The cows and the donkeys just stared and I swear were saying ” UM who is that guy with you?”

We watched the sandhill cranes fly in and the pink/lavender sky.

An hour passed and nothing.

We moved locations.

My husband thought he saw a slight orange hue.

I was like NO WAY. That is not gonna be it.

We waited and it rose so quickly that I was speechless. Ok I was not speechless. I ooooh-ed and ahhhhhh-ed until there could be no more oooooo-ing and ahhhhh-ing. It was the most massive orange moon I had ever seen. I was so excited I got to share that moment with my husband!!!! He took a few pictures of the moon and me. It does not at all show the massive moon. I guess you need something more than a camera phone for that!!!! But that wasn’t the point. We were there and saw it and it was awesome!!

Within a few moments it was behind a cloud and gone.

During the time we were out there we had a magical experience of this dragonfly that I also wanted to share. We were watching the sun set and hugging when a dragonfly did loops around us. He would start at our feet and fly around both of us until he got to the tip of our heads. He would stop a moment and we could see how big he was and then he would zip off again. It was one of the coolest things I have ever experienced. I tried to video tape him. He was SOO fast. I looked it up when I got home and saw they fly 30mph which would be why it was hard to see him flying so quickly around us. If you look hard enough you will see a flash of dragonfly!

    1. My daughter was so cute she said “why are you in the pictures? You usually only take pictures of the sky.” I said ” Um your dad took them so he included me.” She is so used to just my random photos but he was with me so he put me in the photo
