Skywatch Friday – Yule Edition


We had a full moon just before Christmas. Usually known as the Cold Moon. I found a new name that I like, “Moon Before Yule.” It was bright, silvery, and beautiful here in Oklahoma.


Also just before Christmas we had dinner with some friends and then went to Tulsa’s superb Gathering Place to check out the Christmas lights. We missed the lights but just walking through the place is great. Aboveis the Williams Lodge. 


I’m continuing my geocaching trying to get to 2000 before year end 2019. I am finding myself in very out of the way places like the remote cemetery above where my only company was a few deer. We had a standoff for literally a minute or two with them and standing motionless until, I was like, okay you win and waved my arms and off they ran.


My brother drove over from Tennessee for Christmas and we are having a good visit and sharing Christmas with him. Its always nice to have family and consider ourselves blessed that we can be together. 

I hope you had a Merry Christmas and I wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!

    Gorgeous photo of the moon! Is that a bed made of concrete in the cemetery? I’ve never seen that before! I like the deer, and spending time with family is always a Blessing!

    I caught this moon as it was bidding farewell .The reflection on the water was gorgeous. Unfortunately the phone camera didn’t do it justice. Also there was a pesky light on a building that spoilt the image . Happy New Year to you and happy clicking.

    We enjoyed this moon – so big – for about one and a half hours on our way home! What an interesting ceiling! Hope your Christmas was enjoyable, and wishing you all the best for 2019. Thank you XXXX for hosting Sky Watch!
