"Morning" Group,



Here is a link to another Moon image. A smoldering fire in southern Georgia has again flooded N Florida with smoke. Some of it drifted into higher altitudes and out into the Atlantic ocean. This set the stage for a rather odd view of the Moon last night about 8:50pm EDT. The Moon was a little over 9 degrees above the horizon. The smoke particles were no doubt very small in size in that the view and details present were remarkably good given the elevation and considering the smoke! This image was featured on local tv news reports last night. Many of my co-workers have been asking if I saw the orange Moon last night. It is posted on the user site album "Birds and things with the 130GT".



Imaged at prime focus with the 130EDFGT/Canon7D.

Thanks Chris, Scott, and Ignacio,



The image seems to capture what most people saw in this apparition. "Did you get a shot of the Moon last night when it was low in the sky and orange?" was a common question I had throughout the day. One person said the Moon looked just like a Navel orange... I said no... It was just Sunkist (alternate insert "sun-kissed")! Sorry for the pun, I'll go now.

We had a similar red moon last night, rising over the Midwest. The Boundary

Waters of Minnesota has a 175 square mile forest fire that is sending smoke

down as far south as Chicago. In fact, the air in southern Wisconsin

smelled of smoke and you could see the haze in the distance. They have had drought

conditions up in Minnesota for the last 2 months and the fire has been

burning since mid August.
