Red Moon

I mean really RED. We went to the Congregation of one of our friends this last Sabbath. We all had a good time, and on the way home we got to see something really neat! As the Full Moon rose, we watched it turn from a really dark red to a reddish-orange along the tree line.

Here is what it looked like when we got home- riding in the van doesn't make for good moon photos. :-(
I have done no editing to the color, this is really what it looked like!
