[The Wisdom of a Distracted Mind] Eeek! Galactus is eating my house!

Here comes Galactus.

Last night... err... At about 1:00 am Saturday morning, I stepped outside to catch some night air before bed after an evening spent writing, and I looked to the skies to see an awesome "Moon Dog."

It's pretty surreal, don't you think?

Of course, since it was the dead of night and all, it took some painfully long exposures to grab these shots. But, the end result was wild. You see, normally, the sky is pretty much completely black, but thanks to the shutter staying open for as long as it did, you can actually see some color as a result of the city lights reflecting off the clouds and haze above.

Other than that, I'm sorry for not posting much today. It was a busy day, and that whole time thing seems to have gotten away from me. I swear, one second it was somewhere around noon, and the next, it's ten at night. It was a good day, though.

Anyway, I hope your weekends are going great, and I hope you enjoy the picture (I set it so you can look at the other sizes of this picture. I've had to restrict that lately, and I'll try and write about the reasons for that sometime soon).

Well, I've got to run. I'm beat and this monkey desperately needs his beauty rest... Or, a beauty coma.

  1. Stare at the picture for 30 seconds or so, and count the number of perfect circles you see.

  2. Very cool...I've heard of a sun dog, but never a moon dog!


  3. It is amazing how the days get away, especially on the weekend, they just go to fast :o)
