If you have followed the blog for awhile or know me, you know I enjoy looking up, and trying to capture some of this beauty with my camera. We just finished a lesson on the Solar System with our first grade class so when the news announced the solar celebration happening this month, we shared it with our kiddos, and have tried to sneak a view ourselves.
Due to the winter storm south of us, the first few nights and mornings only offered a glimmer behind the cloud cover. Last night the sky was beautiful and I did capture this picture of the moon. I hoped to get up this morning, one article suggests the best time to view this phenomenon is seventy to eighty minutes before sunrise. Are you wondering what excitement is happening?
A great drama unfolds in the predawn sky throughout January, 2016. Beginning around January 20, all five bright planets will appear simultaneously before dawn."

My goal is to get up early enough, on a day without cloud cover, to witness this cool happening. And it would only be better if I can take a few pics too and share them with all of you.
"The Morning Moon" has moon pics from last year, click on "The Morning Moon" to view.
Have a great night and if you capture a pic or two, tag me on Facebook when you share so I can see too. I'm hoping we can capture this spectacular with our cameras.
Have a starry night my friends!
