Skywatch Friday – A Noon Walk and a Full Wolf Moon


I got away from work for a little while Tuesday at noon and drove to nearby Gilcrease Museum. I didn’t go into the museum but I went for a walk on the adjacent city park, Stuart Park. There was a sign there to be on the lookout for a bobcat and to report sightings. So that kind of perked my interest. I didn’t see any bobcats but I did take a few photos. It was very warm, almost 70. This is after being 4F on Saturday morning. Now we are supposed to have an ice storm on Saturday. Oh well, this winter if you don’t like the weather just wait a little bit and it will change.

And then last night when I got home I noticed the moon was almost full so I got my trusty camera out and took a shot. It is the Full Wolf Moon, or almost full I guess. I love taking shots of the moon. I have dozens of them. I don’t know why, it doesn’t really change does it. I imagine I’ll be taking lots more as time passes.

I’m linking this post with Skywatch Friday. Come join us. A new link starts Saturday at 2:30PM Central Time (US).

    Wow, magical view of the pond in the park and amazing moon!! I observed it, yesterday, but I can’t take such a picture. For sure, it is magical! Have a very nice day and weekend, too!

    Fabulous capture of the moon Alan – fascinating pinkish glow at the bottom! You’re not alone with crazily erratic weather conditions – here in South Australia we jump from 40C (with overnight “low” of 34C at 7:30am!) to 20C next day, extreme bushfire warnings to Flash flooding warnings – grateful to have a wide range of seasonal clothing to choose from! Thanks to you and the team for hosting. Wishing you a safe week.

    Hi there, I love your full moon shot. I take umpteen moon shots and will continue to do so. I’m glad you do so we can enjoy when you share them. Greetings Jo (South Africa)

    Hello, pretty shots. I would love to see a Bobcat in the wild. Just not upclose! Awesome moon capture.
    Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

    Alan, both sky views are excellent! In the first, you have beautiful blue skies with wispy white clouds, with a cluster of bare trees near the river’s edge capturing their reflections and a gentle reminder of autumn’s past presence with the trees’ wardrobe now suspended in the water. Who tires of seeing the moon and desire to capture its beauty? Not me! It never changes, other than the phase it’s in yet there is something magical about it. Maybe, it’s because this is a place that few of us will ever visit and it’s the child within us all that stands gazing upward with dreams to step on its surface one day. Lovely lovely Skywatch Friday photos!

    Here’s my SWF post!

    Nice shot of the Moon. We don’t have a such range of temperatures here, but it’s annoying enough. One day is +6C, then it’s -5C, then it’s snowing, but it’s only 0C, so it means it’s gonna rain 🙁

    Awesome shot of the moon, we tried to get some photos this week but no chance it’s usually mostly overcast here at night.

    Great moon shot — and it is really nice to have a beautiful park like that close enough to your work for a break once in a while. That temperature change is enough to give you whiplash! (Or pneumonia.)

    Yogi, I love the moon too. I am supremely jealous of your magnificent picture. I do not have the equipment or skills to capture the mood in such glory. Thank you for lifting my smile this early morning.
